Trail is Mowed! Walk Across the Meadow to Bassett Brook
You can now walk to Bassett Brook without wading through tall grass, thanks to our own staff who have mowed a path through the meadow. It’s lovely–quiet, cool, and peaceful. Thanks to Mike Strycharz for responding to the request of the Land Conservation Subcommittee, and to Dennis who did the actual mowing on Monday morning.
So do this: start at the little blue garden shed at the end of Bassett Brook Drive. Follow the wide mowed path through the woods to the meadow. Then you can now also cross the meadow and walk through the woods about a block’s length to a bluff that looks down onto Bassett Brook. Along the way, you’ll see birds, butterflies, and wildflowers.
There should be minimal danger from ticks as long as you keep to the middle of the path and do not brush against the tall grasses where they like to sit, just waiting for you to come along so they can attach to your pants. They can’t jump.
