Trailblazers-Walk Mt Archer to Pickwick’s Preserve

Date: Tue January 6, 2015
Time: 10 am
Place: Meet at Mt Archer Preserve Parking Lot, Mt Archer Road, Lyme
Contact Email: hstyler@comcast.net
!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

Walk in the woods5Join us for this moderately easy walk in the woods. Everyone is welcome.

This week’s hike will explore Pickwick’s Preserve to Mt Archer Woods, led by Humphrey Tyler, Lyme Land Trust board member. The hike is a little more than 2 miles – about an hour long. Meet at the Mt Archer Woods Parking Lot. We will arrange to have enough cars left at Pickwick’s to ferry everybody back to the starting point at Mt. Archer parking lot.

Rain or snow cancels. Let Humphrey Tyler know if you plan to attend the walk so that he can contact you in case of cancellation. hstyler@comcast.net

Directions: Rt. 156 north to Mt. Archer Road. Left onto Mt Archer Road. Go one mile on Mt Archer Road (bear left up the big hill). The parking lot is down a long driveway on the left, the 4th long driveway after you start up the hill. Look for the stone post marker that has “Mt Archer Woods Town of Lyme” written on it. It faces the road, so you can’t read it until you are on top of it. (If you get to 100 Mt. Archer Road, you have gone too far).
