SENIOR WALKING GROUP
        
The Division of Natural Resources, in conjunction with the Council on Aging, is excited to present a series of unguided walks. All walks commence at 10:00 am of Wednesdays. Please be at the meeting place five to ten minutes before the walk begins. Parking is very limited at Punkatasset, Wright Woods, and White Pond so carpooling is strongly encouraged

Below is a schedule of walks with links to trail maps to assist you on your journey.

What to Bring: Water, Bug Repellent, Camera, Binoculars, Field Guides, and a friend.

Reduce your risk of Tick Encounters by following these tips:
1. Keep to the middle of the hiking trail (Ticks thrive in shady humid areas with leaf litter and low brush).
2. Check yourself for ticks numerous times during your walk.
3. Chemically-treated clothing and use of Deet on skin can limit your exposure.
4. Prompt removal of an embedded tick will greatly reduce the chances of the tick transmitting disease. Use a pair of pointed tweezers or tick removal tool.

Carpooling is always encouraged.

All litter, cans, refuse, bottles, and trash shall be removed from the Conservation Lands by the user unless placed in an official trash receptacle.

If you want to bring your canine friend, dogs must be kept under owner's control at all times. It shall be the duty of each person who owns, possesses, or controls a dog to remove and dispose of any feces left by his or her dog.
