Closed

We will explore the Chatfield Trail Blue Trail that wanders into Clinton. This trail gives us the option of a terrific loop that works out to about 7-8 miles that are somewhat challenging with uneven footing, and a few tight squeeze areas (one called “Fat Man Squeeze” – suck it in, kids). You’ll be required to sign a liability waiver before this event begins. Details will be provided well in advance.

Part of this trail is at risk of being sold to the highest bidder for development. Now’s the time to get out, get to know and love that trail – and let others know, too.

TO WEAR: Hiking boots are mandatory. (Slippery leaves, residual ice, mud puddles and lots of rock scrambles. Wear wicking layers – No cotton.! Dogs Okay if well behaved on trail and you can provide their veterinary records.

TO BRING: Water (2 bottles, minimum), snacks, energy and enthusiasm, copy of trail map.

COVID:
