Shelton Trails hike on Dec. 1

The Shelton Trails Committee will hold its annual hike on the Turkey Trot Trail on Sunday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m.

The hike is a Thanksgiving weekend tradition. A moderately easy two-mile loop with a steep hill or two, the Turkey Trot Trail passes through woods and around Silent Waters reservoir. The committee notes that the trail is not stroller-friendly. Kids and leashed pets are welcome.

Those planning to hike should meet at the Shelton Intermediate School parking lot on Constitution Boulevard North. If weather is questionable, check the Hikes & Special Events page of the Shelton Trails blog at for updates.
