Hyde Park Walkabout

Hyde Park Walkabout

Hyde Park Healthy Trails Walkabout

Come hike the yellow and red trail at Winnakee Nature Preserve to work towards your annual walkabout patch! This easy to moderate hike takes you on dirt-surfaced woods roads with rolling hills for a 1.3 mile hike round trip. You’ll enjoy babbling brooks and a chorus of forest birds as you meander through upland hardwood forests and hemlock groves.

Walkabout is a project to promote healthy physical activity – walking on trails. Walk at least 5 trails, see great places, get great exercise, and earn a free sew-on patch.
