Moonlight Hike: Saturday, February 7th

Please join us for the CLCT event of the season - the annual Moonlight Hike!

The Moonlight Hike is a magical hike through the winter forest and fields, illuminated by the soft light of candles. The trail leads to the horse barn on our neighbors' farm, where you will find refreshments (chili, cocoa, other beverages, and treats), a roaring fire, and good company.

The public is welcome, and there is no cost to participate, although donations are welcome. Refreshments will be provided by the CLCT, but your contributions to the table will be welcomed. The event is from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. No dogs, please.

Directions: drive up Indian Hill Road to its end and turn right to ascend a few hundred feet up Breezy Hill Road past the trail head.  Please park only on the west side (left side as you go uphill) of the road and watch carefully for pedestrians making their way back down to the trail head.

Please dress for the weather.  In case of bad weather, check this site before heading out to learn of any rescheduling or cancellation.
