July 28: Reservoir slog with Rotten Groton

This just in …

Join us this Saturday for our 5th running. . .a ramble through the woods and shiggy-filled trails of Groton. There’s nothing like a floundering about on the trails near the reservoir with one (maybe two beer checks) to make a person truly fall in love with coastal New England.

HARE: Little Hummer Boy

WHEN: Saturday, July 28th, 2012 @3:00pm

WHERE: Copp Family Park (If you put 821 Gold Star Highway in your GPS, you should be good). We’re parking in the lot at the park entrance

STROLLER-ABLE? not unless you have strong arms and a patient baby

DOG-ABLE? YES!!!!! (Copp is home to the Groton’s dog park so you can even sneak in some off leash time for the puppy).

BRING: $5, whistle, drinking vessel, change of clothes for poison ivy, bug spray (we’re near water. . .looooooots of bugs), tick gear

ON AFTER? Seven Seas Pizza (they have beer. . .just sayin’)

GET THERE FROM POINTS NORTH

  • Take I-95 South
  • Take exit 88
  • Turn Right at the end of the ramp onto CT-117
  • Turn Left onto Gold Star Highway
  • look for Paul’s Auto on the right. Just after that, you’ll see the parking lot on your left.

GET THERE FROM GROTON

  • Get to Gold Star Highway.
  • Drive as if you were going to Walmart.
  • If you’re coming from Long Hill Road Side, drive 1.5 miles until you pass Buddington Road on the right, and see Paul’s Auto Shop (great repairs, good prices) ahead on the left. Turn right into Copp Park’s parking lot just BEFORE Gungywamp Road and Paul’s. It’s the only thing on the right.
  • If you’re coming from the Mystic side, look for Paul’s Auto on the right. Just after that, you’ll see the parking lot on your left. Turn. Park. Hash.

GET THERE FROM POINTS SOUTH

  • Take I-95 North towards Groton.
  • Take Exit 86 (a left exit) as if you were going to the Sub Base, but continue straight once you get off the highway. You will pass Walmart and Five Guys (and a great Indian restaurant).
  • Continue 1.5 miles until you pass Buddington Road on the right and see Paul’s Auto Shop on the left.
  • Turn right into Copp Park’s parking lot just BEFORE Gungywamp Road and Paul’s. It’s the only thing on the right.
