OLD LYME — One of Old Lyme’s most treasured assets is the town’s many walking trails run by various non-profit groups. The Old Lyme Land Trust (OLLT) manages 1,100 acres of land, including 800 acres of hiking trails.

Come and learn more about these OLLT trails at an in-person event tomorrow, Wednesday August 17, at the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library in Old Lyme.

This is the first of four workshops co-sponsored by the library and OLLT. It will take the form of an informal conversation in the community room of the library. All are welcome and there is no admission charge. The discussion will cover the many trails, their unique characteristics and degree of difficulty, and what you can expect to see and experience while exploring them.

OLLT hikes include those categorized variously as easy, moderate, or difficult. There are water view hikes and others that take you into the deep woods.

OLLT volunteers will highlight trails that connect to Old Lyme Open Space properties and will also provide attendees with a city-wide map of trails.

Registration is appreciated at OldLymeLibrary.org for planning purposes, but walk-ins are always welcome.
