Upcoming Spring Trips 2013
GEOLOGY OF THE SOUTH ESKER - Sunday, June 16, 9-10:30am – Hike back in time to when a mile-thick glacier moved over Hanover, followed by an icy lake. Today, beautiful trails along the Connecticut River take us past the esker left behind. Join us for a family-friendly trip through a towering riverside forest. Leader: Dartmouth Earth Sciences Professor Carl Renshaw. Level: Easy. Directions: from the Green in Hanover, travel south on Main Street (Route 10) through downtown and down the hill. Cross bridge over Mink Brook. Take first right at entrance to Pine Knoll Cemetery. Follow the main lane through the cemetery toward the wastewater treatment plant; look for blue trailhead sign just before the plant comes into view. Park along side of lane.
