Grand Opening of New Trails at the Mallory Preserve

October 10 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join NCLC for a second grand opening of new trails at the Mallory Preserve in Sherman.  In June, we celebrated the new lower loop trail.  Now we have completed the more challenging upper loop, adding over one mile to the trail system.

NCLC will lead hikes of the lower trail (an easy hike) and the newly constructed upper loop (a more challenging hike).  The schedule of the hikes is below. Space is limited. Please register for a specific hike by emailing  events@ctland.org.

10:00 AM – Guided hike of the upper loop

11:00 AM – Guided hike of the lower loop

12:00 PM – Guided hike of the upper loop

1:00 PM – Guided hike of the lower loop

Prefer to hike alone?  No problem. We’ll be handing out trail maps as well as scavenger hunts.

Day: Sunday, October 10 (Downpour Date: Monday, October 11)

Time: 10 AM – 2 PM
