Conservation Land Summer ToursPosted Tue, Jun 11 at 07:30pm
Join the Rindge Conservation Commission this summer on four hikes and one paddle to explore beautiful trails and wetlands in our town. Each outing will be led by an experienced Conservation Commission member who is knowledgeable of the history and unique natural resources present on the conservation lands.
The 1-hour hikes begin at 1:30 p.m., are free of charge, follow well-defined trails and are held rain or shine. Please protect yourself with sun screen and bug spray, and bring a bottle of water.

Your Rindge Conservation Commission and Corps have been hard at work clearing brush and maintaining trails for your long-term enjoyment of these special places. Trail maps of the conservation lands are now available on TrailFinder (www.trailfinder.info) where you can see pictures and learn more about each trail.
