On Saturday November 4th, join Land Steward Bill Brown for an easy two-hour hike over part of the 220-acre Oak Hill Conservation Land. The planned route is 2.5 miles long and has about 600 feet of ascent. Meet at the parking area off Oak Hill Rd., around the corner from the old railroad depot (GPS coordinates = 42.53723, -71.51769). We will start the hike at 1:00 PM. Oak Hill was purchased by the Town in 1972 and is managed by the Littleton Conservation Commission.
We will see the geologically significant Tophet Chasm where glacial Lake Nashua drained and cut a deep chasm, visit the highest point (508’) in Littleton, and enjoy the vista at Lookout Rock. Please see the trail and property descriptions and area map at: https://littletonconservationtrust.org/tws_holding/oak-hill/. Reviewing this information first will make your visit more rewarding.
There is no fee and no pre-registration is required. Hiking shoes or other footwear with good traction are recommended, as parts of the trails are rocky and steep. No dogs allowed on this hike. In the event of rain, the hike will be rescheduled.
