Explore two beautiful preserves with GLCT member and AMC-trained Janet Ainsworth (203-530-7826 or firstname.lastname@example.org). The hike will begin at Braemore Preserve in Guilford, continue to Coan Pond in the Rockland Preserve in Madison, and return back to the start. Be prepared to encounter moderate terrain with some ups and downs, while enjoying meadows, wetlands, pine bluffs, rocky ridges and a restoration of a charcoal pit along the route. Well-behaved, leashed dogs are welcome. Meet at the Braemore Preserve parking lot on Route 77 in North Guilford, opposite Bluff Head Farm. Note: steady rain cancels this event.
