The hike will cover several areas of the preserve, including: the “Succession Field Trail,” onetime farmland that has been reclaimed over the years by woods; the “Tall Conifers,” comprising white pine, spruce and larch planted in 1909; “Hidden Pond,” a kettle pond tucked away in the preserve where participants can engage in bird-watching; and “Glacial Kame,” a type of hilly deposit formed during the ice age. The walk will cover three miles over somewhat rough terrain.
