  • Join the SKLT for their 3rd Thursday Hike! January hike features the 1.26 mile Yawgoo Pond Trail, which takes the hiker by a kettle hole bog, over Mud Brook, and through a grove of stately white pine trees. Yawgoo Trail is also noted for its thick under-story of mountain laurel, especially near the steep banks of the kettle hole, and spectacular views of pristine Yawgoo Pond. The first acquisition in this area by SKLT, a 12.04 acre parcel at the south end of Yawgoo Pond, was through private donations in February 2001. The second acquisition, in October of 2005, preserved 68.3 acres on the east side of the pond. This project received support from the DEM Forest Legacy and Open Space Bond Fund, The Nature Conservancy, The Champlin Foundations, The Bafflin Foundation, and private donations from neighbors.
