Hike At Chapman Mill Pond
Sat. Jun 4
less than 2.5 miles
The Westbrook Conservation Commission is leading a nature walk/hike at Chapman Mill Pond this year for Connecticut Trails Day! Please join us for a family-friendly, mostly flat hike, with one or two inclines/hills, just under 2.5 miles long. We recommend wearing sturdy shoes as there are parts of the trail with rocks and roots. There will be opportunities for nature photography, plant/tree identification, and vernal pool education.
