Celebrate Halloween by dressing up yourself and your four-legged best friend for a stroll along the Pine Island Trail to Little Pond and then onto the Litchfield Greenway via Gallows Lane (chills) passing the cemetery (BOO!) and finishing up at Mallard Marsh. Look for signs of life and a good deal of pointing and staring along the way! All dogs must be on leads! Spooky treats for everybody after the walk! This hike will be about 3 miles on flat terrain but small dogs may find the footing along the Boardwalk a bit precarious. 2:00 P.M., Meet in front of the A. B. Ceder Room!
