Explore some of the old roads and ancient ways of Edgartown on horseback, with an informal (noncompetitive) trail ride on Sunday, Nov. 25.
Riders are invited to gather their horses for a 10 a.m. start at the deer weighing station off Barnes Road near the state forest headquarters. There’s plenty of room to park trailers, and trail wardens from the Edgartown byways committee will be available to stop traffic for anyone riding over from the state forest west of Barnes Road.
The trail includes portions of the Dr. Fisher Road, Tar Kiln Road, and Three-Cornered Rock Road; the total distance is about seven miles. Maps and directions will be provided, so riders can go at their own pace.
For more information — and to give organizers an idea of how many riders to expect — call Barbara Paciello at 508-696-8276 or Susanna Sturgis at 508-696-6877, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The rain date is Sunday, Dec. 2.
