Mt. Wachusett Day Hike

Sunday, November 12, 2017 12:00 AM

Come join us for a late fall hike to Mt. Wachusett! We plan to hike about 6 miles with approximately 1000 feet of elevation gain at a moderate pace (~2 miles per hour). The proposed route includes Balance Rock, the summit of Mt. Wachusett, and possibly Echo Lake. On a clear day the summit provides views of Mt. Monadnock, Vermont, and Boston. Fall foliage has been late this year, so hopefully we can catch the last glimpses of changing leaves. This hike is a great option for Couch to 4K participants looking for post-program hikes.

"On Feb. 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes.
