Hike to Half Mile Pond at Smith Pond Shaker Forest
November 2nd, 2019
5 Mile Out-and-Back Hike
Meet at parking area on Smith Pond Road
Smith Pond Shaker Forest has been a featured UVLT property this year, benefitting from 4 corporate volunteer workdays, many hours of individual volunteer time, and multiple events. Help us finish 2019 strong with a hike up to Half Mile Pond on a trail built by Tuck School of Business students. The first hike event on the Half Mile Pond Trail led by UVLT staff, it promises to be a rewarding experience! Meet your UVLT leader at the Smith Pond parking lot on Smith Pond Road in Enfield (I-89 exit 15) at 11 am. The hike will be about 5 miles total, featuring open pond views and grand vistas. A moderately challenging outing, bring snacks, water, and good hiking shoes. Be prepared for weather of all kinds!
The Chestnut Challenge has officially closed.
