Kick off the new year outdoors! Connect with nature and take a healthy hike (or snowshoe) co-sponsored by Wintonbury Land Trust, Bloomfield Parks, Recreation, and Leisure Services, and Wintonbury Hills Golf Course. We’ll highlight the natural beauty of this Town-owned property that is home to the award-winning course designed by Pete Dye and certified a Cooperative Bird Sanctuary by Audubon International.
The hike will be approximately 2.0-2.5 miles, depending on conditions, with stunning vistas of the Metacomet Range, Bloomfield Reservoir, and WLT’s Beacon Hill Preserve. If there is snow on the ground we’ll snowshoe rather than hike. Meet at 11:00 in the parking lot. Leashed dogs are welcome. Severe weather will cancel.
RSVP online to help us manage the group size for everyone’s safety. We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to explore the Wintonbury Hills Golf Course property (if you’re not a regular golfer), one of Bloomfield’s most scenic locations! First Day Hikes are part of a nationwide initiative led by America’s State Parks to encourage people to get outdoors.
