This hike offers stellar, uninterrupted views for hours on end when the weather cooperates and the clouds are lifted.
We will hike Ward Reservation located in Andover MA. The hike starts at 12:30 pm from the main parking area in Andover MA on Proctor Rd. The hike will include a section of the Bay Circuit Trail and other reservation trails, and participants will learn about the conservation efforts for grassland birds. The fields are nesting habitat for bobolinks, tree swallows, bluebirds, and kestrels. Kestrels are close to fledging from their nest box in Taft Field. There will also be the chance to relax at the Solstice Stones with scenic views from Holt Hill, Essex County's highest point.
