Let's Explore a Less-Traveled Peak, Eastman Mountain, a 52 with a view
Come explore Eastman Mountain with us! This will be an 8.6 mile hike up to the less-traveled summit of Eastman Mountain at 2939 feet. Don't let this modest height fool you. This will be a challenging climb up and down, with 2600 ft. elevation gain.
Since we will be hiking the beginning of May, please don't expect pristine trail conditions.
Love to be outdoors
Come paddle with us from the vicinity of the historic Newton Boat House along a six mile stretch of the Charles River. We will explore from the Moody Street Dam in Waltham to Newton Lower Falls with the maximum of 12 miles of paddling round trip depending on participants abilities. Plan on 3-4 hours on the water.
Participants must have prior kayaking experience; be able to enter/exit their own boat on their own; provide their own gear; and follow the leader's instructions on COVID safety. PFDs are required. Please bring your own snacks/lunch/drinks.
