National Trails Day Hike


National Trails Day is coming up on June 1, and we’re lucky to have so many trails to celebrate right here in Shelton. If you’ve never ventured off the Rec Path (or on it either!), taking a guided hike on Trails Day can provide a perfect introduction. 

We’ll meet at 10:30 AM in the Shelton Intermediate School parking lot. From there, we’ll take the Rec Path to the Paugussett Trail, the Oak Valley Trail, and hop over to the Turkey Trot Trail. On the way, we’ll enjoy views of two reservoirs and a wide variety of habitats. 

The route is approximately 2.5 miles of gentle ups and downs and is NOT stroller-friendly. Kids and leashed pets are welcome. Fun for the whole family!

Rain date/time is Sunday, June 2 at 1:00 PM. If weather is questionable, check this page for updates.
