Guided Public Trek on November 5 at Bachelor Brook-Stony Brook Conservation Area

SOUTH HADLEY— On Sunday, November 5, 2023 at 1:00pm the South Hadley Bike/Walk Committee will lead a guided Trek on the North Loop of the Bachelor Brook-Stony Brook Conservation Area located off Hadley Street/Route 47 in South Hadley. Bike/Walk members Caroline Martin and Anne Barry will lead the Trek through the area’s beautiful, but underused, north section trail, which can be accessed from a trailhead on Hadley Street/Route 47. The beginning part of the hike is somewhat steep while the return section is more wide-open and either flat or downhill. The area is fairly wild and there are lots of interesting plants and many birds, as well as a view of river on the way in. The loop will take approximately 90 minutes to complete.

Parking for 12-15 cars is available in a small hiker lot on the left as you head north on Rt. 47/Hadley Street, just before the bridge over the brook. If that lot is full, more parking is available back at the larger Town Farm lots, about two tenths of a mile south of the small hiker lot. Please use caution when walking on Rt. 47 from parking areas as the road is a bit curvy. There is room to move off the road and walk on the adjacent grassy strip.

We will meet at 12:45pm at the small hiker lot, located just north of the Community Garden, which is at 100 Hadley Street. We will leave at 1:00pm for the trailhead, which is about a tenth of a mile further north on Rt. 47 and marked by a brown wood sign with yellow letters. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and safe footwear, and bring water and walking poles, if desired. Please keep in mind that some areas of the trail can be wet and one section in particular can be quite muddy, so hiking footwear is preferable to sneakers. While no hunting is allowed in MA on Sundays, bright clothing is always a good idea.

All events are subject to change or cancellation due to weather or ground conditions and any decision to cancel will be made and posted by 10:00am on the day of the Trek.
