POSTPONED: Extended-Length Hike at Boxford State Forest

  • 744 Sharpners Pond Road North Andover, MA, 01845 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER

Come spend the afternoon exploring Boxford State Forest. For this hike, we're trying something a bit different— we'll hike for approximately 4 hours instead of the usual 2 hours! See how beautiful the forest really is as you follow portions of the Bay Circuit Trail across the Boxford border, explore a large red pine plantation nicknamed of the "Enchanted Forest", observe a beaver lodge & its inhabitants' recent activity, and more (including a possible off-trail adventure to the granite "tri-town stone" marking the intersection of North Andover, Boxford, & Middleton - if conditions allow it).

Participants should come prepared for an extended-length hike of approximately 4 hours. Microspikes, Yaktrax or other traction aids recommended unless we have a complete thaw or enough snow to use snow shoes.
