The approximately 60-minute trek is roughly 1.5 miles in length. Be
prepared for snowy trail conditions, deep or not, or for anything else Mother
Nature sees fit to give us in January!
The chosen trail route loop is relatively flat with only a few minor
ascents/descents. Wearing crampons,
snowshoes and bringing walking poles may be beneficial—totally the personal choice
of all participants.
Meet at 12:45 pm at the access parking
lot (large pull-off area on New Ludlow Rd) adjacent to Fairway Wholesale
Distribution, 654 New Ludlow Road, South Hadley. Participants may also park in Fairway’s
parking lot. To reach, take Rt. 33
SOUTH, turn left on to Old Lyman Rd, then left on to New Ludlow Rd. Fairway’s will be on the left with the access
parking lot immediately after Fairway’s (access parking lot entrance is off New
Ludlow Rd). Wear weather-appropriate clothing and safe
footwear, and bring water and optional snacks.
Non-enjoyable or hazardous inclement weather/conditions will force
a cancellation (a News Flash will be posted on the Town website).
Post-trek, please join BWC members at the
Drunken Rabbit Brewery (749A New Ludlow Rd) just down the street for some fun socializing and to get better acquainted with this
new business in town!
