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 this Thursday afternoon/evening.

This hike will take place at the town’s Champlain South Open Space, rain or shine. Hikers should meet at 4:15 p.m. at the Library Lane entrance, just a short distance past the Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library.

The pleasant hike will start on the white trail, which winds along a beautiful path through lush ferns and forest.  At a trail junction, hikers can either backtrack or continue on a moderately difficult trail across a few hills to complete about a 45-minute walk.

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.

This will be the season’s third “Hiker’s Happy Hour.” A final “Hiker’s Happy Hour” of the season is scheduled at the Old Lyme Inn, Oct. 3, with more information to follow.
