Please join us Sunday afternoon October 22nd for a short but rewarding fall foliage hike on Mount Watatic. We will take the Wapack Trail (1000' elevation gain) to the summit at a moderate and comfortable pace. From the summit we will take the gentler Nutting Hill trail to complete our loop back to the parking lot. Mount Watatic features a bald summit with views of Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire and Mount Wachusett in MA. On a clear day you can see Boston to the east and Mount Greylock to the west. Distance approximately 3 miles. We will meet at the trailhead for check in. Trip departs trailhead in the early afternoon. Register with Millie at email@example.com for further details.
- "The view from the top is amazing and we could see Boston many miles in the distance. There is almost a 360 degree panorama from two treeless summits."
