For those of you who enjoy hiking and connecting with the history of our area, this event is a great match for you. Join Ausbon Sargent’s Land Protection Specialist, Andy Deegan, and Brown University Biology Professor Jonathan Waage as they lead this 2.25-mile R/T hike on Coco’s Path leading to the beautiful Spofford Meadow. This is a moderate hike, as there is a short section of the trail that is relatively steep. The property is of great historical significance dating to the late 18th Century. It includes the foundations of homes built by Benjamin Bunker and his son, Nathaniel, and is referred to in historical documents as the Bunker Farm.
This is also an important property to hike since four trails cross the Bunker Farm, including the Wolf Tree Trail, the Bunker Loop Trail, the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway, and the Webb Forest Interpretive Trail. These are all great options for your future hikes. Please join us.
