Upcoming Hike on CT Trails Day
Candlewood Ridge
Sunday, June 2nd at 1:00 PM

Join Groton Open Space Association and GO GROTON* on CT Trails Day for a refreshing 2-mile hike through the forests of Candlewood Ridge, located at the end of Lambtown Road in Groton. The hike will cover terrain that is mostly flat with a few short sections of incline. Highlights include a nice vista, large boulders and ledges, an old stone foundation, and possibly blossoming Mountain Laurel. Families and friends of all ages are welcome to participate, as well as friendly, leashed dogs.

Register for the hike at the CT Trails Day page on the CT Forest and Parks website.

*GO GROTON is a partnership between GOSA, Groton Public Schools and the Town of Groton Parks and Recreation.
