Come explore the newly acquired Browns’ Woods and take a walk through the Town Forest. Browns’ Woods was recently acquired through the joint efforts of the Town of Littleton, Littleton Conservation Trust, and Sudbury Valley Trustees. Take this walk to learn more about the property and why it is an important link in the conservation properties in Littleton. Town Forest now has a series of amazing boardwalks, thanks to some diligent and hardworking volunteers, to help all of us enjoy the property without sinking into the many muddy areas. It now has a main trail and several loop trails that allow hikers to go through the forest and see different views.
We will start at 1:30 p.m. at 119 Tahattawan Road with an Introduction to Browns’ Woods. Then, at around 2 p.m, we will break into groups and walk through Browns’ Woods and Town Forest and back. People who don’t want to do the entire walk will have the opportunity to retrace their steps to their cars. (See the parking information.) The trails are all marked!
Please make sure to wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots and bring water and a snack, mosquito repellant, and a jacket if needed. These trails are wooded with some rocks and quite a few roots. A one-way hike through Town Forest and Browns’ Woods is approximately 2 miles, although it might be a bit longer if you do every loop trail.
While we love our furry friends, we ask that you leave them home during this event. This will mean that all participants are comfortable. Thanks!
There is some parking (about 10 cars) at 119 Tahattawan. Alternate parking is on Harwood Avenue at the Town Forest sign. To join the Introduction, you will need to walk the short path through Browns’ Woods. The entrance is across the street from the Harwood entrance to the Town Forest. There is also the possibility of parking at Balsam Lane and walking through Town Forest and Browns’ Woods. It is approximately 1.5 to 2 miles.
We’ll share additional information on Facebook at Littleton Conservation Trust and Littleton Trails leading up to the event.
Hope to see you there!
