SHELTON — After the pandemic forced its cancellation last year, one local organization is bringing back a Thanksgiving tradition.

The Shelton Trails Committee will be holding Turkey Trot Trail hiking event at 1 p.m. on Nov. 28, the Sunday after the Thanksgiving holiday. The route of the event is a moderately easy 2-mile loop with only a couple of steep hills.

The Turkey Trot Trail passes through woods and around the Silent Waters reservoir lake in Shelton.

Hikers should meet at the Shelton Intermediate School parking lot located on Constitution Boulevard North. People are reminded that Turkey Trot Trail is not stroller-friendly. Children and leashed pets are welcome.

If weather is questionable, the people should check the Hikes & Special Events page at sheltontrailscom.blogspot.com for updates about the event.
