Family Self-Guided StoryWalk on the Old Mill Trail, Hinsdale

Learn about different animal tracks! 


The StoryWalk® will be on display for a self-guided adventure from Saturday, March 11th – Sunday, March 26th (dawn to dusk) on The Old Mill Trail in Hinsdale.  


Animals are all around us. While we may not often see them, we can see signs that they have been there. Some signs might be simple footprints in snow or mud (tracks) and other signs include chewed or scratched bark, homes or even poop and pee (traces). In Animal Tracks and Traces, children will become animal detectives after learning how to read the animal signs left all around. Smart detectives can even figure out what the animals were doing!  

While the audience of the book is Kindergarten to 3rd grade, the content is great for all ages- even adults!  


From the center of Dalton: take Route 8 south to the Hinsdale line. From the town line, continue 4/10 miles to a left on Old Dalton Road. The trailhead parking is the first, immediate left, across from the Hinsdale Trading Company.  

GPS: 42.4480, -73.1305 (trailhead parking)
