Bear Pond Celebration Hike

February 8th, 2020
Canaan Town Forest Parking Lot
Canaan, NH

We are celebrating Bear Pond! From its rich history of local conservation efforts, to its ecological significance in the area, to its recent change in ownership from MWCC, who cared for the property for decades, to UVLT.

We will meet in the Canaan Town Forest parking lot and hike together to the Nature Hut where we will briefly stop to look inside. We will then bushwhack out to the pond using a never before used route! At the pond we will stop for a few remarks on the property. Back at the Nature Hut we will have hot chocolate before heading back to our cars. Total hike distance: 3mi, moderately easy.
