Take a Champlain South Hike and/or Join ‘Hiker’s Happy Hour’ at Old Lyme Inn, This Afternon

OLD LYME — A “Hikers’ Happy Hour” is being sponsored Wednesday, Oct. 13, by the Old Lyme Open Space Commission, the Old Lyme Land Trust, and the Old Lyme Inn.

A guided walk will leave at 4:15 p.m. from the Library Lane entrance to the Champlain South Open Space. Library Lane is located off Lyme Street and hikers should continue on the road past the Old Lyme-Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library to the road’s end. Parking is limited, so carpooling will help.

After the hike, people will re-group at the nearby Old Lyme Inn for a 5 to 7 p.m. happy hour, with half-price drinks and nibbles the first hour. One need not hike to enjoy the social gathering at the Inn.

Hikers should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring insect repellent.

In the event of rain, meet at the Old Lyme Inn for Happy Hour instead of the trailhead.

This will be the final “Hikers’ Happy Hour” for 2021.

    There are some amazing rock structures in view and adjacent to the trail. I’m amazed that there’s been no climbers, yet. As noted, there’s only a few spaces at the entrance to the trail.
