[ARCHIVED] Guided Trek at The Ledges Golf Course—With or Without Snow

Will there be deep snow on the ground by February 21st? What if there isn’t? No worries! The South Hadley Bike/Walk Committee has it all covered with “Plan A” and “Plan B” for a guided trek at the Ledges Golf Course (and the Newton-Jones-Carver Conservation Areas) on Sunday, February 21 at 1 pm.

Plan A: If there’s deep snow covering the course, the public is invited to experience the fun and exhilaration of a guided snowshoe trek on the grounds of our very own public golf course. This is a terrific opportunity for novices to bring their snowshoes as the terrain is relatively easy. For those more experienced, this is a chance to indulge in a more laid-back trek (or perhaps the first one of this winter season!). The hike will be approximately 1-1.5 miles in length.

Plan B: If there is no snow or not enough snow, the outing will be a guided walking trek on the golf paths of the course to/from the trails of the Newton-Jones-Carver Conservation Areas which are adjacent to the back of the Ledges. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover and explore another little-known gem of town-owned conservation land. The trails are relatively flat with a few minor-moderate ascents and descents. Total trek time is approximately 1.5 hours.

For either “plan”, meet at the club’s parking lot at The Ledges Golf Course, 15 Mulligan Dr., South Hadley. Wear weather-appropriate clothing and footwear, and bring water and optional snacks. Walking poles are recommended for Plan A, the snow-shoe trek. Non-enjoyable or hazardous inclement weather/conditions will force a cancellation.
