Join the Carlisle Trails Committee for a Sunday saunter between Carlisle's two favorite ice-cream locations, Kimball's at Bates Farm and Great Brook State Park.
Sunday June 25 - Double Sundae Sunday Saunter On Sunday June 25, the Trails Committee will lead a marathon walking and ice-cream-eating extravaganza starting 11 a.m. at the Carlisle School parking lot and returning to the school at around 4 p.m.

Walk to Kimball’s, buy ice cream, and eat it at leisure at a picnic table or on the grass. 11:45 am: Walk 2.8 miles to Great Brook Farm Ice Cream via Cutter’s Ridge, Heartbreak Ridge, and Pine Point Loop trails, arriving around 1:30. Buy ice cream and relax on the grassy hillside by the pond. 2 pm: Leave Great Brook and walk 3.5 miles back to the Carlisle School parking lot via Fern Loop, Old Morse Road, and Conant Land trails. 4 pm: Return to Carlisle School parking lot. Spot a car or meet at Great Brook Farm to do only half the walk.
