Old Mill Trail Hike, Hinsdale/Dalton, 3/28/2018

Join us in exploring the history of the mill site along the East Branch of the Housatonic River.

We recommend wearing microspikes for the Old Mill Trail hike as there are still some icy patches. Also, Alison Dixon from the Housatonic Valley Association will be joining us to talk about the history and their interactive interpretive trail. If you’d like to try for yourself tomorrow download the HP Reveal App (formerly Aurasma) for free!
