Easy to moderate hike, estimated up to 90 minutes.  We will meet at 2pm at  the west entry to the State Office Building, in the parking lot, facing Sewall  Street.and amble up the old Ganneston Park carriage road before descending down a steep ridge into the Kennedy Brook flood plain.  The brook meanders through mature hard and softwood forest between a  steep-sided valley. This is a shaded, "secret" spot within a stones throw of the Capitol. The stream, forest and landforms all make for interesting artistic expression.  The group will make some strategic stops to sketch and take photographs. Come prepared with  bug repellent (tick warning!) good walking shoes and drinking water, as well as sketchbook or camera.  Questions? Call Brian Kent cell no. 242-6278.

Registration in advance is required for all hikes on the Howard Hill property.  Until KLT’s acquisition of Howard Hill is completed in the fall of 2015, the property remains in private hands and is not open for public use.  The current landowner has granted KLT permission to host a limited number of guided visits to help build the support necessary to successfully complete this important conservation initiative.
