Nubanusit Lake to the Spoonwood Pond Hike

by on February 16, 2016 in Nelson Trail Group, Promote
You are invited to hike across Nubanusit Lake to the dam at the end of Spoonwood Pond on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 11 AM – 2 PM.

                                                                                  Looking northeast at Nubanusit Lake from the Spoonwood Pond Dam
Join the Nelson Trail Committee for a leisurely walk across the ice of Nubanusit Lake, through the isthmus of Louis Cabot Preserve, across pristine Spoonwood Pond to its 1859 vintage 12’ high and 280’ long dam & spillway. For more than 100 years that impoundment provided much of the energy necessary to power the Harrisville mills.

At the dam, the Trail Committee will host a free cookout and provide hot dogs, chips, cookies and hot chocolate. Depending on conditions, bring ice walkers (such as STABILicers or Yaktrax), boots, snowshoes or cross country skis  – your choice. Round trip: 4 miles. Total elevation gain: 0 feet. Meet at Dave Birchenough’s (827-3552) at 162 Nubanusit Road, Nelson at 11 AM. We should be back by 2:00 PM.
