Location: Meet at 61 Champlain Rd, Orleans (OCT sign at property, park along rock wall)

Details: The Grassy Knoll Conservation Area consists of over 3 acres of pine-oak woodlands with views over Nauset Harbor. This land was generously gifted to OCT by the Eskin and Meany families in 2008. The walk will the continue into the salt march of Nauset Harbor, and we will circle back to Champlain Rd via a small parcel gifted to OCT by the Grunenbaums to OCT in 1991. The entire walk will be about 1 mile.

Directions: From the intersection of Rt. 28 and Main Street in Orleans, drive east on Main Street (.4 mi) towards Nauset Beach. Turn left on Tonset Rd. at the lights and follow to Hopkins Lane where you will take a slight right (.5 mi). Continue to Brick Hill Rd and bear left (1 mi), take a slight right on Champlain Road and follow to number 61, which is a small meadow with an OCT sign along the rock wall on your right.
