Weekly Winter Hike Series in the Hilltowns with the Trustees of Reservations

Weekly Hike Series This Winter with the Trustees of Reservations

Families with younger children and homeschooling families are welcomed to join in a new winter hiking series with the Trustees of Reservations on Thursday mornings in Ashfield, MA.

Even though it’s cold outside, and the snow and ice will be here soon, walking in the woods is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air, and stay fit and healthy this winter.  Join the Trustees of Reservations for a new weekly walk series on Thursdays at the Bullitt Reservation, Chapel Brook, and other destinations in and around Ashfield, MA.  The walks will be easy to moderate guided group hikes in the woods.  Come look for signs of winter wildlife, meet  some new neighbors or catch up with old friends, get your blood pumping, all while enjoying some new and familiar places!

The first walk will be on Thursday, December 13th at 10am, for 1-2 hours at the Bullitt Reservation (332 Bullitt Rd.) Ashfield. The next two hikes will be on Thursday, December 20th at 10am at the Chapel Brook (Williamsburg Rd.) Ashfield, and Thursday, January 10th at 10am at Bear Swamp (Hawley Rd.) in Ashfield. We will meet every Thursday, weather permitting, through the winter.

The hikes are free and open to all, but please register to be notified of inclement weather cancellations, directions to hikes, and for more information by calling Ryan Pennesi at 413-628-4485 x1 or emailing rpennesi@ttor.org

This series is sponsored in part by The Trustees of Reservations and the Student Conservation Association.
