What could be better than a Choate Island hike AND picnic? This special spot is the jewel in the crown of the Crane Wildlife Refuge, and is only accessible by boat. Join us for a rare chance to explore the cultural and natural history of this treasure. Participants will be led on a modest trek that will go past the Proctor Barn, White Cottage, and Choate House before landing all the way to the top of the island where spectacular views await. A picnic lunch (sandwich, fruit, cookie, drink) for each participant will be prepared by our award-winning Inn at Castle Hill.

Pre-registration is required. The starting location for all hikes, kayak paddles, and river boat trips will be emailed to registrants the day before the event at the address provided upon registration. If you prefer to have this information over the phone, please call us using the contact information provided at the left.

Please note: We will hike a total of 3 miles across both flat and hilly terrain. Sturdy shoes are strongly recommended, and all are advised to dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along, as is sunscreen and insect repellent.

Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that heavy steady rain and/or of thunder and lightning will be present, we will make the decision to cancel the program no later than 3pm the day before. If the program is cancelled all registrants will be notified by email and phone with as much notice as possible.
