Thanks to the volunteers who worked so diligently in the Old School Lives Forest, we have a wonderful hiking trail located behind the building.  Just follow the first baseline out into the woods from the baseball field. The trail is marked and makes a nice loop that takes 30 to 40 minutes depending on your speed.  When you hike please watch for wildlife and if you spot any animals or birds please let us know.  We keep a Trail Journal in the office and like to document the wildlife that we see.  We are watching for deer, moose, birds and in particular owls. Sightings will also be posted. Soon the trails will be ready for snowshoeing! Come on out anytime to take a hike!
