Glocester’s Steere Hill Hike

September 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Glocester Land Trust invites you on a guided walk of their spectacular Steere Hill Conservation Area. Starting at the parking area, we will walk through the forest on twisting trails, over an earthen dam, rocky ridges, past a shepherds hut site, a grove of American Beech, immense stone walls and barn foundations, to a 27 acre meadow with a breathtaking five mile vista at the summit of Steere Hill. On the way down the hill we will visit an ancient cemetery with unmarked field stones for headstone and footstones that may date to the 1740’s.

The trail is a little rough, gently rolling, and can be muddy, so wear appropriate shoes. At the top of the hill is a portable toilet. Leashed dogs are welcome. Bring water. Total distance is approx 3 miles. This walk will be cancelled if it is raining.
