Get to Know Barrington's Trails

This article contains information from the Conservation Commission regarding the Barrington Trails Committee.

The Barrington Trails Committee will be hiking the Newhall Easement and introducing the concept of Shinrin-yoku, a Japanese term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing". Join them to explore some of the benefits of immersion into Barrington's natural beauty, during a moderate hike that includes rolling terrain.

The trail hike will be 1.5 miles long, lasting 1.5 to 2 hours on Saturday, September 14th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The high points have lovely views of a marsh with beaver lodges, a creek, and ample forest land. Hiking boots and poles are recommended; however, no bathing suits are required.
