On Sunday, October 30, 2022, at 11 am, join Weston Forest & Trail Association for a border-to-border walk through Conservation lands north to south from Lincoln to Wellesley.
The route will be mostly on trails with one short link on sidewalks along Wellesley Street from Route 30 to Norumbega Reservoir. The walk will start at Ogilvie Town Forest where it borders with Lincoln, walk down through Jericho Forest, crossing Route 20 into Nolte Town Forest, through Highland Forest, cross Route 30, then follow the sidewalk to Norumbega Reservoir (no dogs), Hubbard Forest and then cross Glen Road into Carisbrooke Reservation in Wellesley.
The walk will leave at 11 am from Stonehedge Road in Lincoln (where cars can be left), have a midway snack stop in Nolte Town Forest (near Highland), and then continue with an expected arrival at Carisbrooke around 3:30 pm.
Please make sure you are in proper shape for this walk which will be challenging in distance (expected to be around 8.5 miles) and have several hills as well. No dogs are allowed on this hike — we will be on MWRA property at Norumbega Reservoir where dogs are prohibited.
Walkers will make their own arrangements or carpools for drop off at beginning (Stonehedge) and pickup (end of route — cars can be left at the Gail Road/Burt baseball field). Light refreshments will be available at the end of the route, at a trustee's home on Glen Road.
Please register for the walk using this form. If you would like to find a carpool, we will provide a list of all attendees to each attendee, including the contact info submitted on the form, during the week before the walk.
Again, please make sure you are in shape for the walk, and are prepared with water and snacks for the route. No dogs will be allowed.
Please contact walk leader Kristin Barbieri at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
