Milford Conservation Commission 4th Saturday Hike - August 27, 9 am, The Saturday, August 27th Milford Conservation Commission’s 4th Saturday hike will include two locations.
The hike will begin at the Hitchiner Town Forest and then continue on to Beaver Brook’s Burns Farm Trails.
Hitchiner Town Forest Trail: This property is located at the end of Mullen Road off Osgood Road. A large pavilion stands near
the parking lot. The well-marked trail includes Burns Hill. The top of the hill is not on town property but forms part of the trail
with permission of the owner and provides for excellent views. There are several old logging roads and skimobile trails which add to
the accessibility of the land. This land is classified as Town Forest.
Burns Farm Trail: The Burns Farm trail system is located on the 194 acre parcel donated to Beaver Brook by Bill Burns in 1994. This
property was donated to promote environmental understanding and resource protection. It encompasses many different habitats as and is
home to a broad range of plant and animal populations.
Please join us . We will meet at the pavilion at the end of Mullen Rd. at 9 am. The hike will include some relatively easy trails but
also encounters a brief steep-ish section if one chooses to ascend to the top of Burns Hill to enjoy the views. Mark your calendars, the Conservation Commission leads a hike every 4th Saturday of the month, starting at 9am.
