Full Moon Hike, Nicholdale Farm

Sunday, September 23, 7:00 PM


What could be more fun than a walk through woods and meadows by the light of the full moon … to a roaring campfire for a little marshmallow toasting! Weather permitting, we’ll hold our annual Full Moon Hike on Sunday, September 23 at 7:00 PM at Shelton Land Conservation Trust's Nicholdale Farm. Please join us! 

Park at the MAIN LOT (there are two parking lots with signs), just west of the house at 332 Leavenworth Road. The somewhat hidden entrance to the lot is between a telephone pole and the beginning of a long guardrail. 

The hike will be fairly short and relatively flat. Kids and leashed pets are welcome. The trail is somewhat uneven and NOT stroller-friendly. Dress for the weather and bring a flashlight or headlamp.

Please note that we need Mother Nature’s cooperation for this event. In the event of rain or seriously overcast skies, please check this page for updates. 

Hope to see you there!
