Event Description: 

Join us at Miller's Pond State Park as we go on a Barefoot Ramble. Barefoot hiking brings one closer to nature and truly in contact with the land. The trails at Miller's Pond are gentle in slope and offer a wonderful opportunity to "get your feet wet" with barefoot hiking. For those of you new to barefoot hiking, check out these resources: Beginners Guide to Barefoot Hiking and The Barefoot Hiker by CT's own Richard Frazine.   

We will meet at the parking area for Miller's Pond State Park, located off of Foot Hills Road in Durham, CT. The hike will start at 10:15 p.m. so please be prompt. Feel free to bring a lunch or go for a dip in Miller's Pond at the completion of the hike.

Being barefoot it not required to join us at this Ramble but it highly recommended.
