Full Moon Hike at Nicholdale Farm


Grab your flashlight and join us at 7:00 PM on Friday, October 2, for a moonlight hike at Shelton Land Conservation Trust’s Nicholdale Farm. While social distancing requirements mean NO marshmallow roast this year, we can still enjoy the meadows and woods by the light of a full moon.

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, the hike will be rescheduled to Saturday, October 3 at 7:00 PM. Check this page for updates.

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.
