Full Moon Hike at Nicholdale Farm



Grab your flashlight and join us at 7:00 PM on Sunday, October 13, for a moonlight hike at Shelton Land Conservation Trust’s Nicholdale Farm. We’ll tromp a short way through the meadow to a roaring campfire for a marshmallow roast. Fun for the whole family and since it’s a holiday weekend, there’s no need to worry about staying out late on a school night.

Meet at the main parking lot for Nicholdale, GPS location 324 Leavenworth Road. Look for the “trailhead parking” sign next to the entrance between a telephone pole and the beginning of a long guardrail. 

Registration is not required. Children and leashed pets are welcome. The trail is uneven and NOT stroller-friendly. Dress for the weather and bring a flashlight or headlamp. 

In case of inclement or cloudy weather, check this page for updates.
