Event Description: 

Wonder of the Woods Family Walk and CFPA Ramble—celebrate National Trails Day®, the country’s largest celebration of trails, by enjoying the forest with your children!

Come and explore the wonder of the woods on this nature walk for young children and the people who care for them. We will meander through the trails of Brooksvale Park, explore the stream in spring, and stop by the barnyard to visit the animals and hear a story. You are invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy after our walk. This is more of a meander than a hike and is intended for families with children from birth to around 8, although older siblings and others are welcome to join. Please wear waterproof footwear; we will be crossing a stream.

***Please leave pets at home.***

This free guided outing is co-sponsored by the CFPA Rambles program of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and Wonder of the Woods Family Walks.

As program of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, CFPA Rambles are intended to bring people, fun, and the outdoors together. Led by trained CFPA Ramble Guides, these FREE, engaging outings are offered on trails around the state every month throughout the year.
