OLD LYME — The Old Lyme Land Trust (OLLT), the Old Lyme Open Space Commission and the Old Lyme Inn are sponsoring a “Hiker’s Happy Hour” on Wednesday, May 5.

Hikers should meet at 4:15 p.m. at the Old Lyme Land Trust’s Watch Rock Preserve, in the parking lot at the end of Joel Road. All are welcome.

From Rte. 156, turn off onto Noyes Road, take an immediate right on Caulkins Road and when it bends to the left, take another quick right turn onto Joel Road and follow it to the end.

The pleasant hike will wend its way though the Preserve where hikers will look at coastal forest, a reclaimed meadow, and attempts to restore the native understory vegetation.  Spectacular views of the Connecticut River are also to be found.  The hike is flat and easy and will take 45 minutes.

Hikers should wear comfortable walking shoes and bring insect repellent.

Hikers can enjoy a friendly happy hour at the nearby Old Lyme Inn but you need not hike to enjoy the event! The happy hour at the Inn will begin at 5 p.m. for hikers and others alike.

The public is invited to join the hike and/or the happy hour.

A Watch Rock Preserve trail map may be found at the Old Lyme Land Trust website.

P.S. In the event of rain, meet at the Old Lyme Inn for Happy Hour instead of Watch Rock.
