Farmington Land Trust's 2nd Stroll on the Land - Will Warren's Den on June 28th, 6pm

Land Trust volunteers are busy making final preparations for this Thursday's hike to Will Warren’s Den. We're watching the weather and (so far) the forecast for Thursday sounds perfect!

Led by Board Member Bill Novoa, this is the second of four outdoor experiences sponsored by the Land Trust. The group will meet on the Wadsworth Memorial parcel and hike up Rattlesnake Mountain to the notorious den of the legendary Will Warren. 

Scheduled for Thursday, June 28th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, this two mile round-trip includes a strenuous climb with some rock scrambling at the top. The journey is definitely worth the trip though, with scenic views on the way up and an overlook at cliff top that offers magnificent vistas of Hartford on one side and the northwest hills and the Berkshires on the other. Coupled with interesting tidbits of local history and a bit about old Will Warren himself makes this trek a winner on all counts!

The group will meet at the parking area on the south side of Route 6, just east of the intersection of Pinnacle Road and Reservoir Road in Farmington.

This event is free and open to the public. No reservation required. No pets please. In the event of rain, the hike will be rescheduled.
