Weathersfield Hikes

  The hikes are being organized under the auspices of Weathersfield Parks and Recreation. Well-behaved dogs are welcome. We expect a range of hiking speeds. Are you new to hiking? Wear footwear that is broken in and appropriate for our uneven trails. Hikers join us at their own risk. Feel free to call Steve, organizer, at 263-5439
Sunday, August 18th, 9:00 AM:  To the Power Dam, Perkinsville Lower Village Start near the Stoughton Pond causeway. There is a meadow and then the river with a look at the old Branch Brook swimming hole and then the dam, aka the Tolles Dam. We will offer some historical commentary en route and a map of the area. Copies of We Remember – a history of the Lower Village – will be available for $15.00. The route is generally flat with some gentle slopes. If the meadow is tall and is a concern, go near the rear of the line and the grass should be trampled for you.
Saturday, August 31st, 5:00 PM:  Ferry Road and the Connecticut River        This generally level route heads down shaded Ferry Road and into Skyline Nursery. Soon it follows the river, sometimes with views. At one point the remains of the huge Consul Jarvis sheep barn can be glimpsed. The total length is about 2 miles. Carol Orth is the leader.
Saturday, September 14th, 9:00 PM:  Crown Point Road Currently the plan is to walk from Branch Brook Road past the 1759 marker stone that is one of the two original marker stones on the entire route across Vermont and then cross Branch Brook and head up to Plain Cemetery, where we will have left cars to take us back to Branch Brook Road. Distance: about 1.5 miles with some moderate climbing up to the cemetery. For a short walk turn at the brook. Possibly a different section of the CPR will be open by this time.
Sunday, September 22nd, 2:00 PM:  “Up On the Hill” on conserved land near Charlestown Marianne Walsh has been here and expects to join us. We will walk on trails by a river, though a forest and through meadows, and up the hill to a view of Ascutney. After looking at the map on the website, my guess is up to 3 miles of walking. I searched “Up On the Hill UVLT” and went to the website. 
Saturday, October 5th, 8:00 AM:  Ascutney Mountain We will go to the fire tower and the Brownsville Overlook. We will go up the Weathersfield Trail, but people wanting a less strenuous hike (.7 miles up) could drive up and meet us at the top, we hope. I expect to be in that shorter hike, but I’ll see how the knees are doing. We leave early because parking later is a problem.  
Saturday, October 19th, 9:30 AM: Cooks Pond Loop This is a route on wooded dirt roads more than on trail. There is a lovely framed view of Mt. Ascutney from the south end of Cooks Pond. Other mountain views occur at later points. Difficulty: easy to moderate, with one longish incline. Distance: almost 3 miles.
