Weekend Walkabout with the Barrington Trails Committee

See Our Expanded Trails at the Goodwill Conservation Area
Sat, Sep 12th | 9:30 | Ross Road

Please click
here to let them know you will be joining them!

John Wallace will be leading a hike of approximately two miles and two hours in the recently expanded Goodwill Conservation Area on Saturday, Sept 12th at 9:30AM. The area is so new, the town has not completed the parking lot at the southern entrance on Ross Rd, but our good neighbor will allow parking for this introductory hike. From Rt 125, go onto Beauty Hill Rd for 1.4 miles; take right onto private Ross Rd and go about 0.5 miles and we will wave you into a parking spot. Please do not go to the normal Rt 9 lot.

Please bring some water, appropriate footwear and dress, insect protection and a mask to start the hike. We will social distance and remove the masks as we spread out on the trail. We will be reviewing the handiwork of some local beavers and exploring some of the new trails established this past spring. Please leave the dog at home for this hike.
