Herrick Trail Hike

September 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us to discover one of Sherman’s best-kept secrets – the Herrick Trail. Managed by the Naromi Land Trust, the Herrick Trail begins from one of the northernmost points of Sherman and connects with the Appalachian Trail in Kent. We will learn about the interesting history of this area, admire large rock outcrops sprouting with mountain laurel and high-bush blueberry, and look for signs of wildlife while we trek our way through shady hemlock and oak stands. This beautiful spot provides not one, but two of the finest unspoiled vistas in our entire area. Amy’s Overlook and the Housatonic Overlook, as they are known, are nestled on top of forested rock outcrops and provide expansive views of the rolling Housatonic Valley hills and the Housatonic River below.

This one-way return hike is moderately difficult and sturdy hiking shoes are a must. Please bring plenty of water. Dogs are permitted but must be leashed at all times. We will meet directly at the trailhead. Directions: From the Sherman center, follow Rt 39 North to the intersection of Rt 55 and turn left. Then turn right on Evans Hill Road and look for the trail kiosk on your left. Parking is located along the road.
