CFPA Ramble: Stickney Hill Hike
Join us on a moderately paced 1-mile hike with commentary at this 15.9-acre property in Rockville, owned by the Manchester Land Trust, a unique urban park in the mill section of Rockville, part of the town of Vernon. Local historian Jon Roe said the area was inherited by businessman John Stickney in the mid-nineteenth century. Stickney owned the mill for which nearby Paper Mill Pond is named and built a house on an adjacent hill overlooking the Amerbelle complex.
Meet at the eastern end of Pleasant Street (at the dead end). Park along the street. Moderately paced 1-mile walk with a steep hill and bumpy ground.
Be sure to bring water and wear sturdy sneakers or hiking boots. No dogs, please.
This free guided outing is co-sponsored by the CFPA Rambles program of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and Manchester Land Conservation Trust.
