Guided Trail Hike: 1 p.m. sharp. Join members of the Groton Trails Committee on a guided hike on the Gamlin Esker Trail. We will hike together through the woods, up and over a beautiful esker overlooking Cow Pond Brook and flanking a large wetland area where we may see beaver and herons. This hike showcases one of the many wonderful conservation areas owned by the Groton Conservation Trust. Our hike on the Gamlin Esker Trail will be short, as it is mid-summer, about one and one-half hours, and is suitable for families with children. Dogs must be kept under owner's control, and if requested, leashed. Wear comfortable hiking shoes, bring water to drink, and bring bug spray, just in case. The hike will be held unless it is very stormy.


We will meet to start our hike at the very end of Cow Pond Brook Road, past the transfer station. Park on the side of the road.
