Seventh Annual Moonlight Snowshoe postponed to February 7th


At Brasen Farm

BARRINGTON TRAILS COMMITTEE invites you to join us.

The Barrington Conservation Commission and Trails Committee invite you to come for its Seventh Annual Moonlight Snowshoe or hike on Friday January 10 at 7 PM. The hike will be held at a new location this year, the Brasen Hill (aka Warren) Farm. Much of the hike will be on open farmland, but we’ll also venture into the woods, so we’ll experience both the bright moonlight on the (snow-covered?) fields and the somewhat ‘spookier’ feeling of being in the woods at night.

The walking will be easy, with only mild uphills, about two miles in length. Of course, extra care is always needed when walking a) in the winter and b) at night. We hope that there will be sufficient snow for it to be a snowshoe trek, but we'll just walk if conditions dictate. Should it be a walk, there could be a good deal of ice, so footwear with extra traction (yaktrax, microspikes, etc.) is a good idea. Dress warmly enough for the conditions, and though we shouldn't need them for the walk, bring a flashlight.

We should be finished by around 9. If we get rained or snowed or even just ‘clouded’ out, we’ll try again for Friday February 7, then February 8. Otherwise, there won’t be another chance for a public moonlit hike this winter.

Please leave your canine companions at home.

The farm is at the end of Warren Road, which is about two miles west of the Lee Traffic Circle on Route 4, on the right. You can park along the side of the drive that leads up to the farmhouse.
