DATE CHANGE: Shelton Trails Committee’s winter hike rescheduled to March 22

The Shelton Trails Committee’s annual Marshmallow March will now take place Sunday, March 22 at 1 p.m.

It has been rescheduled twice due to poor field conditions  (extremely wet ground due to melting snow), with the previous dates being March 8 and 15.

On March 22, hikers should gather in the parking area at the Shelton Land Conservation Trust property at Nicholdale Farm on Route 110 (the nearest house address is 322 Leavenworth Road).

Campfire and marshmallows

Participants will be guided on a hike to the Boy Scout camp on the property, where they will gather around a fire and toast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate.

“This is a fun event that both adults and kids will enjoy,” organizers said.

The hike is free and open to the public. It is intended to show people how they can spend time outdoors enjoying Shelton’s open space during the cold weather season.

Waterproof boots are suggested. If there’s still snow on the ground on March 22, people are welcome to use snowshoes or cross country skis rather than walk.
