On Saturday, October 11, starting at 10 AM, I will be offering a hike on Higby Mountain as part of the City of Middletown's Recreation and Community Services programs.
We will have a rare opportunity to access the Mattabesett Trail through the city's water department lands that include Higby and Adder Reservoirs. The foliage could be spectacular.
Come join me for a three+ hour moderate walk up the eastern flank of the ridge, along the top, where we can snack, and then continue our loop to the water treatment building.
Wear hiking shoes (some wet areas), bring a snack and water, camera, binoculars if desired.
Directions: on Route 66, about a quarter-mile west of the junction with Higby Road (Red Dog Saloon), look for an unmarked driveway on the right (north) with an orange cone that leads to the reservoir. Follow it to the buildings, where there are restrooms and parking.
Rain date is Sunday, October 12.
Please let me know if you are planning to join us. Questions that morning: 860 262 2788. Otherwise, email me!
