Completed 13 Hikes for 26.2 Miles. It sounds like a lot, but a few trails here and a few hikes there, and it gets covered.
It was beautiful Fall weather in the woods. The sun was shining through the Beech leaves.
The view of the Housatonic River from the Paugussett Overlook was splendid.
The Shelton Trails Marathon has been a great way to explore new trails and open spaces around town. There's still plenty of time to get your walks in. Just download the form on the Marathon page, check off which hikes you did, and earn a one-of-a-kind medal suitable for jackets, packs, or whatever you want to put it on. You can also join us for the guided hike on the Turkey Trot Trail on Thanksgiving Weekend - see the Events page for more info.
Now, I wonder how many other people on the Conservation Commission, Trails Committee, or the other City boards are close to finishing the Marathon?
