Take A Hike - Talbot's Point
By John Nye Cullity
This Sunday, November 9, 2014, at 2 P.M. the Sandwich Conservation Trust is sponsoring a walk to Talbot’s Point in East Sandwich, one of our oldest conservation preserves, and arguably one of our most beautiful. It is a 36 acre peninsula, lying in the middle of the inner marsh of Scorton Creek. It was once farmland, but is now nicely wooded. Features of interest include beautiful perimeter and inner trails, a dark pine forest, views of the marsh, a flowing spring and two tiny islands.
We will begin the walk at the Grange Hall, at 91 Old County Road. When you park, please pull well off the pavement and avoid blocking any driveway. The hike will take about 1 ½ hours, is mostly easy walking, and will not be held if it is raining. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at (508) 888-7629.
