Join the Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT) for a winter hike on New Year’s Day at one of DNRT’s newest reserves with guest leader Brian Gollub.

The hike will last approximately 90 minutes and will travel through the 11-acre Paskamansett Woods reserve. The Paskamansett Woods reserve, along with a trail easement on a portion of Gidley Woods, provides trail access from Chase Road to the historic “Kings Highway” granite bridge over the Paskamansett River. Paskamansett Woods includes a pine-dominated woodland and a small man-made pond that provides excellent wildlife habitat. DNRT acquired the property in 2015.

The parking area and trailhead is located on the east side of Chase Road, just south of intersection with Old Westport Road and across from Gene Street.

Usually only the worst weather will cancel a DNRT walk. If the weather is questionable, call (508) 525-9266 or check dnrt.org on the morning of the walk.

Cost: Free

Although it's a brief walk, the trail at the Parsons Reserve in Dartmouth dips low through wet valleys in some places. Sturdy hiking boots are a must!
