A safe, easy walk for hunting season to explore the abandoned village of the West Castleton Slate Company. We’ll poke around the ruins of the dam and the 1868 slate mill, then take a scenic walk along the lake shore to a quarry site, returning for lunch by the lake at the State Park. 2 miles, easy. Vaccination required.
