UPDATE as of 10/16/2020: HIKE Rain Date 10/18/2020, Sunday
Meet at the driveway into 1055 Cleveland Hill Rd (CHR) (on the left as one drives from Tamworth village, 2.0 miles after The Lyceum). There’s a sign on a tree before the driveway “Tamworthlumber.com” and the driveway is between 2 black mailboxes — 1032 and 1060.
Join us as we saunter down forested paths along Mill Brook a gentle terrain. We will walk parallel to CHR for 0.2 miles, then turn to the south to a recently rebuilt pedestrian bridge over the brook. On the south side of the brook we will walk to a large meadow with classic stone walls and out to Bunker Hill Rd (BHR). From there we have several choices: walk north to see the work on the BHR bridge; or loop back to our vehicles.
It is suggested you bring an extra vest or cloth to sit on moist ground. Leaders are Ed Parsons and John Watkins.
Animals must be under owners control at all times.

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, we gathered off Cleveland Hill Road to walk the cross-country trails along Mill Brook. It was a popular hike, and many showed up! The impetus for some was to see an area in Tamworth they had not been to before. And as usual, the prime motivator was to ‘Go Hike with Friends.’ We meandered down a wide trail out to a beautiful bridge over Mill Brook and bore right towards Bunker Hill Road. The peaceful and attractive brook was high from Friday night’s rain. Later we returned the same way, pausing on a hill with a pastoral view before we walked back to our vehicles.
Join us for our next hike, weather permitting.
