Marshmallow March at Nicholdale Farm 


Coming up soon … our annual Marshmallow March – fun for the whole family! Join us Sunday, March 1, at 1:00 PM for an easy hike around Shelton Land Trust’s Nicholdale Farm to a welcoming campfire and marshmallow roast in the woods. Hike distance will range from 0.5 to 1.5 miles, depending on ground conditions. Note that the terrain is NOT stroller-friendly. Leashed pets are welcome.

No registration required. Please wear appropriate footwear and dress in layers.  

Meet at the Nicholdale Farm main parking lot at #324 Leavenworth Road (Route 110). Look for the “Trailhead Parking” sign.

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.
