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, June 2.
A guided walk will leave at 4:15 p.m. from the red trailhead in the Champlain North Open Space, located at the end of Wyckford Lane, just north of the I-95 exit 70. People preferring an easy, level walk can just go a short way to the Barbizon Oak, a 300-year-old historic landmark.
All are welcome.
After the hike, people will re-group at the nearby Old Lyme Inn for a 5 to 7 p.m. friendly happy hour, with half-price drinks the first hour. 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.
Additional “Hikers’ Happy Hours” are scheduled for Sept. 1 and Oct. 6, with locations to be announced.
Information on the Champlain North Open Space and its trails may be found at: https://www.oldlyme-ct.gov/open-space-commission/pages/champlain-north.
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.
