June Guided Hike: Weir Hill

New Date:  Sunday, June 12, 2016, at 1pm

For our June hike, we'll explore North Andover's Weir Hill. We'll hike the entire lake trail and then climb Weir Hill's double-drumlin formation and enjoy the view.

The hike will begin at the parking area near Steven Pond beach on Pleasant St. (not at the Weir Hill main parking area on Stevens St.)

Our walks are free and family friendly, and usually last about two hours. Heavy rain cancels. Dogs must be leashed.

The latest information will be posted here and on Facebook.
