First Day Hike at Merchants Millpond State Park

Please join us on a New Year’s Day Hike at Merchants Millpond State Park. Meet us at the visitor center.  We will hike from there west on Lassiter Trail to Bennett’s Creek Trail. After completing that trail we will return to the visitor center for hot chocolate, fresh chocolate chip cookies, & bird watching. The total distance is about 2.5 miles.  We will be taking our time and observing what is out on a wintery day.  Plan on 2 to 2.5 hours for the hike and extra time for bird watching and refreshments.  Wear sturdy shoes.
