- This event has passed.
Join Miki Clements-Collier and Denny Wheeler for a moderately strenuous, 3.3-mile roundtrip hike on the trails around Pratt Pond in Mason. From the trailhead on Pratt Pond Road, we’ll head toward Russell-Abbott State Forest, site of the former Abbott starch mill. Then we’ll continue through the woods with views of Pratt Pond, returning to our cars via the rail trail, with a possible detour to a hidden waterfall. Come prepared for a few stream crossings and some short-but-steep elevation gains totaling approximately 250 feet. This area is full of wildlife, including moose, deer, bobcat, and waterbirds.
Meet at 9 a.m. at the rail trail parking area on Pratt Pond Road in Mason. Back by noon. Space is limited, and registration is required.
