Turkey Trot Trail Hike

Mother Nature messed with plans to hold our annual Turkey Trot Trail Hike on Thanksgiving weekend, but never fear -- we've rescheduled! Please join us on Sunday, December 8, which so far is promising to be better weather.

A moderately easy 2-mile loop with a steep hill or two, the Turkey Trot Trail passes through some lovely woods and around Silent Waters. A holiday weekend tradition, it’s fun for the whole family. 

Meet at 1:00 PM at the Shelton Intermediate School parking lot on Constitution Boulevard North. 

Note: The trail is NOT stroller-friendly. Kids and leashed pets are welcome. 

In case of inclement weather, check this page for updates. Hope to see you there!

Trail Monitors Wanted!

Want to help outside of regular work parties? Become a Trail Monitor! "Adopt" a trail you walk regularly, remove any small obstructions, and report bigger issues to the Trails Committee. We can clear the trails much faster if we know exactly where the problems are. For details and information on which trails are in need of a Monitor, have a look at the Shelton Trails Monitor blog page.
