Take a Hike poster

November 17th is National Take A Hike Day.

The Natural Resources Trust of Mansfield is sponsoring a hike for National Take a Hike Day, Saturday, November 17th, 10AM, at the Plymouth Street Conservation Area.
The hike (it’s really a walk) will be led by Mansfield conservationists Tod Snyder and Colin Cauldwell.
The hike is about 1.5 miles and is easy to intermediate. Most of the walk is on level land but about a half-mile has a slight grade with some rocks and roots. You should wear proper walking shoes.
We will meet at the parking area just past the tennis courts at the Plymouth Street soccer fields.

The property adds to properties we own from Fruit Street to our WWII Nature trails property at Branch Street. We plan to add additional trails in the future.This brings the total of NRT conservation restrictions to 407 acres.
