First Day Hike: Little River State Park in Waterbury

January 1 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Start the new year on the right foot with a hike in the great outdoors. On January 1, 2023, everyone is once again invited to join a free, guided, family-friendly hike taking place at many state parks, state forests, and other public lands across Vermont. Hikes are led by professional guides and outdoor educators eager to share their knowledge and love of Vermont’s outdoors.

The Dalley Loop Trail follows an old town road leading moderately upward from the parking area and is a “History Hike” which contains interpretive signage created by Vermont State Parks along the route explaining the locations of various early settlement prior to the establishment of the reservoir below.

The 3.45-mile hike provides both a nice walk in the woods and a chance to see and learn more about Vermont’s history and the changing uses of its landscapes. Footing on the trail is generally good but will be dependent on weather depending so it is always wise to be prepared. If we happen to experience heavy snowfall just prior to the hike snowshoes of some type might be a good idea, in the case of ice micro-spikes might be a good idea.

Please pre-register by contacting hike leaders ahead of time. Guide Names: Dana Lawrence and Nancy Thomas, Green Mountain Club Montpelier Section Volunteers
