Machimoodus State Park Walk

  • August 18, 2013 · 1:30 PM

Let's try this again, hopefully with no drizzle or car accidents.

Machimoodus State Park is a fairly new park.  It was once a part of a private recreation area.  Its 300 acres feature trails, ponds, and views along the Salmon River.

The name Machimoodus comes from the Indian words for “place of bad noises”.  The area is subject to micro-earthquakes that caused rumbling sounds before modern traffic and technology drowned them out.

This will be an easy walk of about 1.9 miles with average ups and downs.  Social walking pace.   

Calm and well behaved dogs are welcome.  Children are welcome as long as they can go the distance.

The walk will be rescheduled if there is a threat of rain.

Location:  This is the given address of the facility.

128 Leesville Rd, Moodus, CT.

    Just want to give a quick thanks to everybody for letting me tag along. A special thanks to Larry for organizing this and for all the knowledge you shared! It was very nice meeting everyone. Next time I come out this way I'll be sure to look into coming out with you all again! Thanks again!

      Michael - good to meet you. Sorry I was not available for a post hike drink. Normally that is usually what meetup groups do. Just to many things to get done before the start of the work week.

    Hello all, I'm new to meetup and I'm in from Chicago on business with the weekend to kill. I'm looking to get out and see the area and thought this might be a good way to do it. Mind if I join you on your hike today?

    I find this morning that I'm still too congested from last week's cold. Going to do a short walk closer to home instead.

    Going to try to make this hike. I think this will be my first hike with the group.

      Planning to bring mine. I think they are well behaved enough to meet Larry's standards. Though that was not always the case. :-)
