Dusty Griffin will lead a free, moderate hike in Taconic Trail State Park, crossing viewpoints on three hills near Route 2 on the western edge of Williamstown, and explore the 18th and early 19th century history of the area. The hike will cover about 4.5 milesm with some short climbs through woods and fields. Families are welcome, but the hike may be too long for younger children.

Williamstown Rural Lands recommends dressing for the expected weather, wearing sturdy shoes or boots and bringing your own snack, water and bug repellent.

The group will meet at the Taconic Trail State Park pullout on Route 2 across from the metal gate. From Field Park (the roundabout) in Williamstown, take Routes 2 and 7 southwest to where they split at the A-Frame bakery. Follow Route 2 west, uphill to the first pullout on the left (south) side of Route 2.
