HOOSIC RIVER TRAIL HIKE AT HOPKINS FOREST
Williamstown, 11 a.m.
Drew Jones, Hopkins Memorial Forest Manager,  will lead a hike from the Hopkins Forest Parking lot to the site of the old Wire Bridge on October 20. Hikers meet at the parking lot at 11:00. The entire hike should take about two hours. Hikers should wear boots or good walking shoes and pack a lunch and water. The trail winds through the ruins of an old summer camp, stands of towering bottomland hardwoods and majestic groves of old hemlock looking down on the Hoosic River. You might want to bring binoculars as wildlife and waterfowl are often seen along this route. This is and "out-and-back" excursion. This hike is offered in conjunction with Rivers and Reverence, a month-long collaboration between the Hoosic River Watershed Association and the Clark Art Institute celebrating our enduring connection with the river. The photographic exhibit is in the Lunder Center and runs from October 7 through November 17.
