Tuesday. Celebrate the spring equinox at Gungywamp, and visit the fascinating, ancient stone features on the landscape, including the calendar chamber. If the sun is shining on the equinox day, we’ll have the exciting experience of seeing the light shine directly into the calendar chamber. In addition, the hike explores rocky ridges, glacial erratics and swamps and evidence of beaver activity, along with the many mysterious stone structures. Walk with us through the woods and absorb the centuries of mystery of Gungywamp.
