The Green Fairy Flies to Devil’s Hopyard
The Green Fairy is flying all across Connecticut to visit her friends.
Today she visited Devil’s Hopyard State Park to visit a bumblebee friend. When you find the Yellow Bumblebee’s house, there will be a letterbox as well as some fairy dust to sprinkle! Good luck!
This hike has some good hills and gets a little rocky at times. Don’t forget to stop at the falls!
Park at the picnic area on Hopyard Road by the covered wooden bridge.
• Walk through the covered bridge and follow the orange trail straight ahead.
• Pass through the fallen tree area, the stream will be running below on your right.
• Climb up the rocky, steep path.
• At the top, you’ll see a dead, barkless tree on your right.
• Turn toward the left (94 degrees East)and take 17 paces (1 pace equals 2 steps) toward the fern grotto.
• There will be a fallen tree at your feet.
• Look inside the tree on the right side next to a standing tree. The letterbox will be covered with bark and leaves.
Please email if there are any problems with the letterbox: firstname.lastname@example.org
