Turkey Trot Trail Hike

November 26, Sunday, 1:00 PM 

Come on out Sunday, November 26 for a Thanksgiving weekend tradition – hiking the Turkey Trot Trail! 

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 fun excursion for the whole family! Children and leashed pets are welcome. Please note that the trail is NOT stroller-friendly.

Meet at 1:00 PM at the Shelton Intermediate School parking lot, 675 Constitution Boulevard North.

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.
