For those who missed my last hike to Leakin Park, now you can catch the forest as it erupts to life in spring. Experience some old-growth forest containing Tuliptrees, Red Oaks and American Beeches approaching 200 years of age with great valley views as we wind our way along the industrial hinterlands, old wealthy estates, and…old girl scout camps with great views of the whole. You can’t even tell you’re in the city. With any luck, we’ll hear some spring peeper and some toads…if you like that sort of thing.

We start at Winans Meadow Trailhead. Look at your map (or your GPS) carefully before you go!

Total Hiking distance is about 3 to 4 miles. The trail will be a mix of paved hiker/biker path, closed old roads, and forest trails.
