Cross-Town Trail (6 miles) Map
Sheep Farm Falls
Sheep Farm Field
This year the X-town trail is a little different. The hike starts at GOSA's Sheep Farm on Hazelnut Hill Rd. about 1/4 mile north of Pequot Health Center. The route proceeds to Fort Hill Brook below the waterfall and then across on the new bridge through Sheep Farm South, a property GOSA hopes to purchase. After crossing US Route 1 at Flanders Rd, the hike continues into the Merritt Family Forest where we pick up the orignal x-town route, continuing to Beebe Pond Park, and "Trail's End" on the Mystic River. A bus will bring hikers back to the start.
Pre-registration is requested. Contact Sidney F. Van Zandt, email@example.com, 860-572-5715 Sorry, no dogs. Heavy rain cancels.
The hike is sponsored by Groton Open Space Association - GOSA, Avalonia Land Conservancy, and Groton Parks and Recreation.
