The first hike of the season is scheduled for Thursday, March 31, 2016. We will be hiking the Trout Brook Valley Preservation Area in Weston, Ct. This is an 1100 acre preserve that has several trails classified as hard, medium and easy. We will be exploring a combination of medium and easy trails totaling about 4 miles.

We will be using the Bradley Road entrance to the park in Weston. However, since parking at the trailhead is limited, we will meet instead at the commuter parking lot just off Exit 41 on the North bound Merritt Parkway. This lot is along the curving Exit 41 ramp and can be entered by
making a right turn from the ramp itself.

We will meet there at 9:45 am, pool and depart for the trail at 9:50 am. It should take us 15 minutes to reach the trail head.

After the hike we expect to be back at this lot by 12:30 pm and we will then proceed for lunch(optional) at a nearby restaurant.

As usual, spouses and friends are welcome to join the hike.

Meet at: Commuter parking lot off exit 41(Merritt Parkway)
