Sun, June 8 - Walk Hawksnest State Park, Harwich (dog friendly)

 Hawknest State Park, an undeveloped state park that feels like a conservation area, is great for a walk, followed by a swim in crystal clear water of a kettle pond.

This is an easy walk of about 2.5 miles, where we will stay mainly on dirt roads, away from ticks.  This is a gorgeous, heavily wooded area with multiple ponds. People and dogs can swim from a tiny "beach" in the crystal clear water of Hawksnest Pond.  If you plan to swim, you might like to do the walk in "water shoes" or bring something to sit on while you change your shoes...there is poison ivy in the area.

THIS WALK WILL BE AT A SNAPPY PACE AND DOGS WILL BE OFF LEASH MOST OF THE TIME. Guests who like dogs running off leash are invited to join you on walks.

Directions: From Rt.6, the Mid-Cape Highway, take exit 11 and turn south on Rt.137. Go a VERY short distance to the first street on your right, Spruce Rd (easy to miss). Spruce is just north of Pleasant Bay Rd. Go right / west on Spruce. When you have driven 0.5 mile, you will see a faded colored flag with beach shoes on it, on the left. Go PAST THAT and keep driving to the next dirt road on your left. See a hand made sign for NATHAN WALKER RD. We'll meet at the corner of Spruce Rd and Nathan Walker at 9:00.

    Great walk followed by all dogs and J. fetching sticks and balls in the pond. A beautiful area in which to walk and swim. Good to welcome Dina to the group.
