About Cancelled — Hike to the Pinnacles at Appleton Farms

This event has been cancelled.

Have you noticed the four mysterious, tall stone structures that dot the property? Have you wondered what they are and why they’re at Appleton Farms?

They are called pinnacles and they have a fascinating history and connection to the Appleton family. Join us for a guided hike to visit all four of the pinnacles and learn about them and so much more. This will be a liesurely walk that will criss-cross the property from the Old House to the Grass Rides and back, with breaks at two of our loveliest spots, Pigeon Hill and Prince of Wales Lane. Water and snacks from our Farm Store will be provided.

Please note, this is our most strenuous and lengthly hike, at approximately four miles, covering a variety of terrain, including some that is rocky/uneven and some that is uphill. Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes for this kind of walking. Bringing your own water and/or snacks is also advised.

Participants will be asked to follow Covid-19 guidlines including wearing face coverings and maintaining social distance. If you are experiencing symptoms, please do not attend the hike.

Space is limited and pre-registration is strongly recommended.
