Residents are invited to enjoy a fall afternoon nature hike this Sunday at Milford’s 100-acre Solomon Woods property. The trail meanders through an upland wetland forest of streams and vernal pools in North Milford.
The hike will take 1.5 to 2 hours, and is scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. Participants will walk around the wetlands and rocky outcrops and see evidence of the Wisconsin Glacier that covered Milford with an estimated 1,800 feet of ice. The trail loops around several vernal pools, old New England rock walls and building foundations. The hike will cross four shallow stream beds that are now dried up, using stepping stones.
