Hike the Millers Pond Trails & Fireside Pot Luck BBQ after

  • Apr 27, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Everyone,

I want most of you to get in some improved cardio-pulmonary & muscular shape for the paddling season ahead or we just leave you behind for the Banjo Boys on the shore to have their way with you if you can not keep up with the group.

Right now i think the kayaking water  temperature is a bit too cold for the very biginners and complete first timers. (Apx 46*F right now).

We will have the hike instead and let 1 more week pass to warm things up a degree or TWO ??

 

So Get your boats out of storage to check they are water worthy and locate some of your equipment for next weeks paddle event.

I will be wearing my orange hunting hat in the Millers Pond parking area.

---------------------------------------------

General Directions:

Use the Maps in the links since there are intersecting towns at this point.

 

http://www.bing.com/maps/?FORM=MLOMAP&PUBL=GOOGLE&CREA=userid1743gobroadfphumem2khvlw7ml8dkb3h3kcgsoxz1369#JnE9LjMxMSUyYmZvb3RoaWxscyUyYnJkJTI1MmMlMmJoaWdnYW51bSUyNTJjY3QlN2Vzc3QuMCU3ZXBnLjEmYmI9NDEuNDgzMzAxODgyOTAyOCU3ZS03Mi42MjczNjYyODUyNTczJTdlNDEuNDc4NTk3ODEzMDY3OSU3ZS03Mi42MzI5OTg5MjQxODg2

From Middletown, follow RT 17 South into Durham. Just past the intersection with RT 147, turn left onto Haddam Quarter Road. This road is very hilly and curvy, so be careful. Go straight at the first 4-way intersection then take a right at the second 4-way intersection onto Foothills Rd. The fenced parking lot will be on your right; do not park on the road, park in lot only.

    The Pond looked very clean and a good place to swim when out of season, Hiking to the mountain peak is for another day. Biking is for trail only. Found old foundations and some flowers in the woods.
    Thanks to Tina for hosting the BBQ and Fire, its good to see everyone.
    I hope to see everyone interested on the first group wide paddle real soon.
    al-r

    Al - that weekend is Daffodil Festival at Hubbard Park. Why not do a hike up the road by the reservoir, enjoy the flowers, music then back to my house late afternoon for potluck and fire pit -- IF the weather cooperates.
