Nobscot Reservation Hike

Trip dates: Wednesday, April 24, 2019 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Get your spring hiking legs on! Join the Wednesday Wramblers for a hike in the Nobscot Scout Reservation located in both Sudbury and Framingham. This 4-5 mile hike features glacial erratics, two homestead sites of Revolutionary figures, a pest house and grave sites, one of which is for children who died of smallpox. It that's not enough, Nobscot Hill (602 feet) and Tippling Rock (426 feet) provide wide views looking toward Boston, and without leaves, we may be able to see Mts. Wachusett and Monadnock. Weather and trail conditions may allow us to hike an extra mile to (Henry) Fords's Folly.

After the hike, those who have the time and inclination may gather for lunch or coffee. Hiking poles are recommended. Please dress in layers for the weather and bring water and snacks. We will meet at 9:45 AM for a 10 AM start. No dogs please. Registration is required so we can inform you of any last minute changes and to receive additional details.

I began leading bike trips for the AMC in 1990 and led for ten years before taking a break. When I became active with the Forty Plus Committee I decided to start leading again. I took a refresher leadership course and Wilderness First Aid and now I am certified as a cross-country ski and bike leader. I have met many wonderful leaders and trip participants and Forty Plus has become one of my most enjoyable retirement activities.
