Ever wondered how the names for the Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association, Windmill Mountain, Windmill Hill, and Windmill Ridge originated? Find out on the “Walk to the Windmill” on Saturday October 13, 10 AM or 11 AM to 2 PM.

Leaders from the Putney Mountain Association and Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association will guide hikers along five different trails to converge at the site of the old windmill that inspired all the “windmill” names.

The plan is for all hikers to meet at noon at the old windmill site to celebrate a shared history of conservation, past and present, by the two volunteer organizations that made these protected lands and their trails possible. At the celebration, hikers will learn about the Five Corners, the early ridgeline settlement there, and the history of the ridge and its conservation by the Putney Mountain Association and the Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association. Picnic lunch will follow.

Participants should bring water, a bag lunch, insect repellent, and perhaps a walking stick. All trail routes are rated medium, but several have steep sections. Trails will traverse parts of Putney, Brookline, and Westminster.

The start times depend upon the routes taken. Because of necessary carpooling to and from different trailheads, advance registration is required so that detailed directions and information about the routes may be given and the groups can be relatively even in size.

For information and required registration, contact Elizabeth Bissell at ehfbissell@gmail.com or 802-387-4587. A map showing the different routes and giving information about their rate of difficulty and their start times and locations may be found at putneymountain.org or windmillhillpinnacle.org

The rain date is Sunday October 14.
