Next Meetup

After work Hike Sessions Woods, Burlington CT
I am running the after work hikes designed for beginners and first times hikers. These events are shorter and less technical than the weekend events. This will be a recovery pace since I am rehabing an injury. We will hike Sessions Woods Preserve in Burlington as an after work hike. We will make this a 3.5 mile loop on the groomed trail that circles the park. We will check out the beaver pond, the waterfall and the fire tower. This is a perfect beginner hike. Those of you with questionable footwear will enjoy the nice pathway. The Sessions Woods preserve has a large sign on the road. When you pull in the road doubles back, at the top of the hill turn left into the parking area. There will be a bunch of state vehicles and a large building with flags. If the preserve is open, there will be a bathroom. There have been port-o-potties on the property this season. I will park somewhere in the middle and have my back gate up. You need to bring pack that includes water, snacks, bug spray, head lamp of flash light, all in a pack. If you bring a dog it must be on a leash. Please no children. ttp://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2723&q=326220&deepNav_GID=1655%20 (http://www.ct.gov/deep/cwp/view.asp?a=2723&q=326220&deepNav_GID=1655%20) http://www.ct.gov/deep/lib/deep/wildlife/pdf_files/maps/maps_other/swtrail.pdf We are in the bear's home so will be loud and leave them alone. --- Legal Stuff --- By clicking on "Yes" for this event you agree, warrant, and covenant as follows: In consideration for accepting this entry, I, the registrant, intending to be legally bound, hereby, for myself, my heirs, my executors and administrators, do waive and release any and all rights for damages I may have against any parties or persons connected with the Hartford Area Hiking meetup group for and related to the above listed event.
