Winter is a great time to explore the Cooley-Jericho Community Forest! Everyone is invited to a hike on Saturday, Feb. 7 from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
The hike will start from the end of Jim Noyes Hill Road in Landaff. Park along the road, but carpool if possible as parking is limited. If you want to walk in from the Sugar Hill side, park at the end of Dyke Road, follow the Class VI road and meet up at the big log landing by 2 p.m.
The hike will be led by ACT board member and naturalist Steve Sabre and Executive Director Rebecca Brown.
Depending on snow conditions, bring your snowshoes, XC skis, camera, kids, and dogs – and dress warm! Be prepared for a steady but not difficult uphill walk (though it could be icy in some places).
Moose and deer abound on this land, and we may get lucky and find tracks of bobcat and fisher, and we will be on the lookout for the elusive American marten. If we are exceptionally lucky we may find the track of a lynx.
