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

OLD LYME — The second Hikers’ Happy Hour of 2022, sponsored by the Open Space Commission, the Old Lyme Land Trust, and the Old Lyme Inn, will be held THIS AFTERNOON on Wednesday, June 1.  

A guided walk will leave at 4:15 p.m. from the Meetinghouse Lane entrance to Champlain South Open Space. A portion of the walk will follow an old 17th and 18th century roadway, where tracks from iron-wheeled carts are still visible in bedrock. 

After the hike, a friendly happy hour at the Old Lyme Inn will follow from 5 to 7 p.m.  Even if you do not hike, you’re still welcome at the Inn for Happy Hour!

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.
