Event Description: 

Enjoy a slow to moderately paced hike on the loop trail at Salter's Pond with some historic commentary at this former millpond. Salter’s Pond got its name from Lorenzo T. Salter who, in partnership with Mr. Strong, founded the Salter and Strong Paper Mill, which became Lydall Paper Mill. The pond and adjacent land is owned by the Manchester Land Conservation Trust. Many "North Enders" learned to swim at this pond before the modern pool was built. Come enjoy a walk down memory lane. 

The walk may be wet depending on the weather, and hikers should wear sturdy waterproof footwear. The route is not mountainous, but does have stairs and bumpy spots, where roots stick out, so participants need to be agile. No dogs, please.

Susan is an American Red Cross First Aid/CPR-trained CFPA Ramble Guide and Manchester Land Trust volunteer.
