Canceled

Details

I am running my after work hikes for the season. Please know that these events are all levels-beginners welcome. The hikes are shorter and less technical from my normal weekend hikes. We finish before 8:00 p.m.

We will head up Heublin Tower from the Simsbury side. You are traveling to rt. 185 in Simsbury and head into Talcott Mt. State Park. Turn into the road with the park sign and drive up the hill to the trail head. There is a port-o-potty here.

STOP staring at your GPS. It will want to take you to Penwood Park which is up the hill and on the north side of the road.

This hike takes you up a challenging, but well traveled steep slope to the ridge facing west. Don't be surprised if small children run past you. Its a brief climb that gets us up on the ridge. We will travel to the tower and catch the beginning of the sunset.

The round trip distance is 2.5 miles. Please wear durable shoes. I suggest a small pack with water, snacks, bug spray, whistle, small med kit. If you have a headlamp or flash light, please bring it.

Please no children. Dogs on leashes.
