Naturalist-educator Clare Green of Warwick and journalist Allen Young of Royalston will lead a hike on Sunday, Oct. 30, through the Arthur Iversen Conservation Area off Gale Road in Warwick, following a new loop trail that includes the Devil’s Washbowl. Although little water may be flowing, the hikers will have a chance to have a close-up view of how, over centuries, water has shaped the rounded concave rocky formation.
The hike is considered easy to moderate, with a total distance of about 2.5 miles. Please bring a snack and water and appropriate footwear since parts of the trail may be slippery because of fallen leaves. The starting point is located on Gale Road two-tenths of a mile from Athol Road. Access to Gale Road is only from Athol Road, as a bridge is out on the North Orange side of Gale Road.
Rain cancels. The hike is limited to 20 people. Please register at http://www.mountgrace.org/devils-washbowl-hike-1030
