Join us Sunday, March 7th, 12:30pm we will hike the 1.2 mile (one way) Dot Banks Nature Trail in the Tompkins Preserve in Sandwich.
This is an EASY hike with interesting features, like the largest black ash tree in the state, a Leopold Bench and unique log footbridge, and the small Lost Lake as a destination. There are no dogs allowed in the preserve.
Bring snowshoes and foot traction and we will determine what we need there. Masks required.
To get there, from Center Sandwich continue straight on Route 113 towards Holderness. In 1.8 miles arrive at Chick's Corner and take a left on Millbridge Road. Just after the first house on the right, pull into the parking lot.

On Sunday, March 7, seventeen happy hikers walked the 1.2 mile Dot Banks Nature Trail in the Tompkins Preserve in Sandwich. We reached Lost Lake and enjoyed the bright sun as we walked out on the safe frozen snow covered ice to a dead tree with two wood duck nests and a beaver lodge, where we leaned close to listen to the sound of a beaver family inside.
