UPDATE: Monthly Walk Location Changed to Sears Land, April 7, 2024 at 2 PM

Updated: Apr 3

Note: Due to updated conditions, the route of the April 7 WFTA Monthly Walk has been CHANGED to Sears Land, including Lee’s Bridge, the Duck Pond, the Heron Rookery, and the historical site of the old chair factory. The meeting place stays the same: Weston Town Hall.


Join us this coming Sunday, April 7th at 2 PM on our next monthly walk, this time through the Sears Land off of Church Street. Walkers should still meet at Town Hall where there is ample parking. The trail route will include some of our most beautiful and accessible trails, a gorgeous stone bridge (Lee’s Bridge), a walk past the School Furniture Factory site where an Eagle Scout and team made history come alive, and then to the blue heron rookery on beautiful Duck Pond (sometimes known as Station Pond).


Please note that given recent rains, and more coming, this is likely to be a very wet and mucky hike. Please wear appropriate footwear.

[SUPERSEDED] Join us on our next monthly walk in Jericho – South. We will walk a 3-mile loop in Weston’s original town forest, to and from French’s Field. Flat terrain. We will begin our walk at Town Hall on Town House Road.


All ages are welcome, as are well behaved dogs on leash. Walkers need not be Weston Forest and Trail Association members, but we encourage you to consider joining us, as dues support the maintenance of Weston’s trails and open spaces. WFTA has been hosting Sunday Walks for over sixty years.


Please check our home page for any last minute changes or developments.

Thanks to everyone for joining us on our March 3rd walk. We had approximately 15 people join WFTA Trustees David Banks and Gail Palmer on a balmy Sunday exploring Cat Rock and 80 Acres.
