With the last stretch of summer upon us and fall around the corner, there are still tons of outdoor activities to take part in! Both summer and fall are great seasons for walking and hiking on trails and mountains. Did you know that the Pioneer Valley is home to a number of trails which are designed for persons with disabilities?
In celebration of the Trustees of Reservations’ 125th anniversary, the organization is offering the Hike 125 challenge, setting local hikers to the task of hiking 125 miles of Trustees trails before the end of 2016. Along with the health benefits of hiking local trails comes opportunities to connect with the landscape and to learn about fascinating bits of history preserved on Trustees properties.
