Snowshoe(?) Hike at Nells Rock Trail 


Will we have bare ground or snow next weekend? Either way, grab your hiking boots or snowshoes as conditions dictate, and come on out for a winter hike on Sunday, January 19 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Meet at the parking lot at the Nells Rock Trailhead (across from L’Hermitage condominiums), gps 160 Nells Rock Road.

The trail is relatively flat and easy, though not stroller-friendly. Distance will depend on trail conditions. Children and leashed dogs are welcome. If weather is questionable, check this page for updates. See you there!

Questions? Contact Val Gosset at 203-803-5247 or valgosset@aol.com

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.
