Hikes

The Ledyard Library has partnered with local hiking groups to coordinate hikes around town. Please wear appropriate hiking attire/shoes, and a mask.

Upcoming Hikes:

May 15 at 10 AM: Join Ledyard Town Historian Kit Foster on an Avery history hike. Meet at the Pfizer Field (GPS 210 Stoddards Wharf Rd, Gales Ferry 06335). Visit the adjacent Avery-Stoddard Cemetery, resting place of many prominent Ledyardites. A short walk up Avery Hill Rd. will pass the historic Avery homestead (built circa 1720 by William Morgan, Jr., the oldest house in Ledyard) to the Avalonia Avery Preserve, site of a historic sheep-dip pen and stone-hand basin. For walkers with energy to spare, the walk will conclude with a circumnavigation of the glacial kettle hole on Avery Hill Rd. Ext. Please register by clicking here.
