Join AMC Boston Family Outings for a winter hike at Mount Watatic in Ashburnham, MA.

We will take the Wapack Trail to the summit (644' elevation gain) at a kid friendly pace. On the way down we will take the gentler Nutting Hill trail back to the parking lot. Total distance is approximately 3.2 miles. This winter hike is best for kids with some hiking experience, ages 6+.

At this time of the year, the trail will be icy in spots so traction devices (e.g., microspikes) are required.
