Middlesex Fells Hike

Trip dates: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Join the Wednesday Wramblers as we head north of Boston to explore the Middlesex Fells. We will hike the 5.2 mile Reservoir Trail which encircles three reservoirs. Open water can be seen from many points on the trail, which is rated as moderate. We will keep a leisurely pace of 1.5 mph. Bring snacks, water, and lunch. Heavy rains or any other extremes of Mother Nature cancels the hike. If the trails are icy or snow-packed (hopefully we will be done with winter by then) traction devices will be required and hiking poles are recommended.

Wednesday Wrambler activities are part of 40 Plus's new Let's Get Out There! local hikes, where the pace ranges from easy through moderate to faster. Whether you're new to hiking, haven't hiked for awhile, or want to up your hiking level, you're bound to find something of interest in "Let's Get Out There!

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.
