Lake Whitehall Trail

Event Calendar

Unless otherwise noted, all Trails Club events are free and open to the public, and leashed dogs are welcome. And in case you're wondering (or worried), the pace of our walks is relaxed (like everything else about the Club). We go out to explore and enjoy the trails, and aren't trying to set speed records for completing the routes. We stop from time to time to point out interesting things, or to let folks catch up, or catch our breath, and we make sure no one falls behind.

COVID-19 requirements for Club gatherings:
  • Masks are required
  • Distancing of unrelated folks (anyone who didn't come in the same vehicle) will be practiced.

Walks & Gatherings
  • Wednesday, April 14, 7PM: Monthly meeting

  • Saturday, April 17, 10AM: Peppercorn Hill walk. Efforts are underway to acquire four isolated privately owned parcels of land within the Peppercorn Hill Conservation area. The Town of Upton will be purchasing three of them, and the Metacomet Land Trust and the Sudbury Valley Trustees are raising funds to purchase the fourth. We'll walk a loop route that goes through the fourth parcel and shows how it connects with the rest of the Peppercorn property. HALT's Rockwood Meadows property will serve as our access to the Peppercorn land and trails. Meet at the Rockwood Meadows parking area (School Street, at the Hopkinton/Upton border).

  • Saturday, April 24, 9AM: Annual Center Trail cleanup. We'll be getting the trail ready for the warm seasons. The primary activity will be clearing debris (leaves & sticks) from the drain ditches so they'll continue to keep water off the trail. If enough helping hands show up, we may send some of the group to another trail, like the Echo Trail. Meet at Parking Lot J on the Loop Road, next to Field 10. Bring gloves and hand tools, especially rakes, and wear sturdy footwear. Coffee/juice and donuts will be provided at check-in. Masks are required, and social distancing will be practiced.
Hopkinton town trail committee meetings (at Hopkinton Town Hall, open to the public)
  • Town meetings are suspended or virtual for now. Visit the Hopkinton town website and scroll down to the Events Calendar for dates/times/Zoom links.
There are also a number of other local organizations with interesting trail-related activities. Contact the hosting organization with any questions.
