Hike-a-thon: Leaf Peeping Along the Hiroshi Loop Trail
Sunday, October 16,
12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Join Harris Center ecologist Karen Seaver and several returning undergraduate interns for a foliage-focused, 1.9-mile hike along the relatively flat terrain of the Hiroshi Loop Trail. We’ll travel at an easy pace so that we can observe natural curiosities along the way, especially the colorful shifts in forest canopy and understory that take place this time of year. Please dress in layers, bring water, and be prepared for ticks.
Meet at noon at the Hiroshi Loop Trail parking area in Peterborough, which is located on the east side of Route 137, 2.1 miles north of its junction with Route 101. Back by 2 p.m. Space is limited, and registration is required.
For general information about Harris Center field trips, including questions about accessibility, see our Outings Information page. For more information on this particular outing, please contact Karen.
About the Hike-a-Thon: From October 7 to 21, we invite you to enjoy the Harris Center’s beautiful trails while helping raise money for trailside benches during our first-ever Hike-a-Thon! The benches will be great places to rest and take in the scenery, and are essential for helping people of all ages and abilities enjoy the great outdoors. Become an official part of the Hike-a-thon by signing up here (in addition to registering for this particular Harris Center-led hike).
