We will walk the popular Caryl Trail to an old mill site. Along the way, we will use magnifying glasses to see what lives under fallen logs and along the forest floor. We may also see some bird life including northern orioles and hawks. The walk is appropriate for all ages. From the high point of the trip we will have a view of the Boston skyline on a clear day. Please bring water, sun screen and insect repellent. Wear good shoes or hiking boots.
