Hio Hills Preserve Hike
To help promote the many open space resources available to the citizens of Plymouth, the Plymouth Open Space Committee (OSC) is sponsoring a community Hike at the Town of Plymouth’s Hio Hill Preserve. We will walk / hike in the woods, on marked trails, accompanied by some of the OSC members.This family fun hike is open to the public!
Intensity: moderately easy, elevation about 180 feet from the foot of the trail.
Parking: Roadside parking south of the intersection of Old Sandwich Road and Ship Pond Road.
Orange cones will mark the trail head, near 1190 Old Sandwich Road
This a guided hike to one of the newest trails in Town. There is an excellent hilltop view of Cape Cod Bay. The preserve is also notable for a number of interesting massive boulders - glacial erratics - that pepper the top of the hill, which school age children will enjoy scrambling over.
No rain date. Call 774.454.1980 if weather is questionable.
Time to complete the hike is about 1 ½ to 2 hours. Insect spray is always recommended in wooded areas for ticks, and for those who decide to linger, bring water and a snack. Pets are not allowed for this hike.
