Are you working towards your 125 miles of trails for the 125 Mile Club or want to me people who are? Join Friends for a moderate hike to check off more miles, meet new people, and enjoy the park! Before you know it, you might just find that you’ve traveled all the miles in the park!
The hike will be about a two- to three-hour, moderately paced trek covering about 5 miles. Bring water, bug spray, sunscreen, and sturdy hiking shoes or boots (no open-toed shoes!). Steady rain cancels the event. Leader: Mike Paglia.
Join Charlie and Sturdy for ‘Weeding Wednesday!’ On the second Wednesday of the month, you can help protect the forest by removing invasive species in the park. Your work will protect endangered species in the park. When you sign up, we’ll let you know the location about a week in advance. Please wear sturdy shoes (no sandals) and long pants. Please bring plenty of water and if you have a favorite pair of gardening gloves, please bring them. We’ll provide gloves, if you don’t have them, and all the tools required. No experience necessary.
Get some fresh air and exercise… and give back to an amazing park that serves tens of thousands of visitors each year. You will be helping to care for the trails by improving erosion structures, raking and digging out the ditches next to trails or cutting brush. Your work will keep the trails from eroding and make sure people can explore the park. Please wear sturdy shoes (no sandals) and long pants. If you have a favorite pair of gardening gloves, please bring them. Please bring at least a liter of water as well. We will provide all the tools and training you’ll need. No experience necessary. Thanks to Bob Flagg for leading this event.
If you would like to explore the Blue Hills Reservation, meet new people, and sample some delicious beers, please join us! The hike will be about a two- to three-hour, moderately paced trek covering about 5.5 miles. Participants who are 21 years and older will have the opportunity to visit a nearby brewery to enjoy some cold ones after the hike. Beer may be purchased at the brewery. Bring water, bug spray, sunscreen, and sturdy hiking shoes or boots (no open-toed shoes!). Steady rain cancels the event.
