Let's Hike Cleveland Farm State Forest

Saturday, May 26, 2018 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

We'll hike about 4 miles along a section of the Bay Circuit Trail following trails that meander along eskers that are reminders of the last glacier that covered New England. Experience a relatively deep forest populated with oak, hickory, beech, hemlock, witch hazel and white pine. Occasionally, we may moderate our pace to enjoy the natural world of this splendid forest. If that's not enough to pique your interest, how about the chance to stand in 3 towns simultaneously?
