The Easy Naturalist: All About Autumn (self-guided walk) at the Old Mill Trail, Dalton/Hinsdale

Nature and Recreation

September 30, 2023 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm - Daily

The Easy Naturalist: All About Autumn (self-guided walk) at the Old Mill Trail, Dalton/Hinsdale
Saturday, September 16 – Monday, October 16 (dawn to dusk)

Autumn is the perfect time for an inquisitive walk through the woods. Deepen your understanding of the changes plant and animal life undergo as they prepare for winter, learning what signs to look for as you enjoy the crisp air and colorful leaves. Why do leaves change color, anyway? Which animals are migrating or preparing for hibernation? Find out answers to these questions, and many more. This installation will be up at the Old Mill Trail in Dalton for a month and is friendly for all ages. The trail is considered easy – 1.4 miles roundtrip and relatively flat surface.
From the center of Dalton: take Route 8 south to the Hinsdale line. From the town line, continue 4/10 miles to a left on Old Dalton Road. The trailhead parking is the first, immediate left.
GPS: 42.4480, -73.1305 (trailhead parking)
