Canton Land Conservation Trust’s Popular Moonlight Hike Returns Feb. 11
The Canton Land Conservation Trust invites those of all ages to its most popular event of the year: a moonlit and candle-lit hike through the woods, followed by a hot meal, roaring bonfire and good company. The hike takes place Sat. Feb. 11 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Hikers will begin at the Breezy Hill Farm Preserve (no earlier than 5:30 p.m., please) and follow a luminaria-lined trail leading the way to a horse barn for a festive gathering, chili dinner and hot cocoa.
There is no charge, although the Land Trust greatly appreciates donations. The Land Trust will provide chili and hot cocoa, and hikers are invited to bring side dishes or desserts to share.
The trail will be packed down, but winter footwear or snowshoes are suggested. The Land Trust asks that you leave your dogs at home this time.
Directions: drive up Indian Hill Road to its end and turn right to ascend a few hundred feet up Breezy Hill Road past the trail head. Please park only on the west side of the road (left side as you go uphill) and watch for carefully for pedestrians. Carpooling is encouraged
In case of bad weather, check www.cantonlandtrust.org or the Land Trust on Facebook.
