The Town of Old Lyme Open Space Commission, the Old Lyme Inn and the Old Lyme Land Trust are sponsoring another “Hiker’s Happy Hour” immediately after a relatively short guided walk Thursday afternoon/evening.

This hike will take place at the Old Lyme Land Trust’s George & Woodward Griswold Preserve located off the Boston Post Rd., about two miles west of Laysville Center and almost opposite Stoneleigh Knoll.  

Hikers should meet at 4:15 pm at the Preserve Parking lot.  Note that parking is very limited in this lot.  Additional parking is available across Boston Post Rd. on Stoneleigh Knoll.

The hike is a fairly relaxed walk of one mile or less over flat terrain, which should take about 45 minutes.  It will start from the parking lot and head to the Lower Mill Pond dam and fish ladder.  A trail map can be found at the Land Trust’s website.

After trekking the trails, hikers can enjoy a 5 p.m. happy hour at the adjacent Old Lyme Inn.

If the weather turns to steady rain, hikers can just go to the Inn, where Open Space Commission members will be happy to chat and discuss future walks. The public need not hike to enjoy the event; the happy hour at the Inn will begin at 5 p.m. regardless of whether those present have hiked!

Future “Hiker’s Happy Hours” at the Old Lyme Inn are scheduled for Sept. 5 and Oct. 3, with more information to follow.
