Charlestown State Park hosts spring wildflower hikes

Wildflowers will be the focus of five guided hikes this spring at Charlestown State Park.

All hikes begin at 2 p.m. and will be led by volunteer naturalist Jean Merritt. They are:

— April 12 on Trail 1: Meet at the Trail 1 parking lot for a 2.4-mile hike past limestone outcroppings.

— April on Trail 6: Meet by the boat ramp for a 2.3-mile rugged hike past lime kilns and the old Charlestown Landing in search of spring ephemerals. The hike will also offer a shorter, easier option.  Read more
