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
interesting things, or to let folks catch up, or catch our breath, and
we make sure no one falls behind.
Walks & Gatherings
Hopkinton town trail committee meetings (at Hopkinton Town Hall, open to the public)
- Saturday, December 4, 9AM:
Monthly Trail Maintenance Day. Center Trail parking area clean-up and boardwalk building. Details are in the link.
- Wednesday, December 8, 7PM:
Upper Charles Trail Committee public forum at the Hopkinton Senior
Center. We're skipping our monthly meeting so folks can attend this
important forum. The UCTC will present their proposal for Hopkinton's portion of the Upper Charles Trail and seek feedback from residents. The Trails Club has developed an alternative proposal for a portion of the route. Please review both proposals, attend the meeting, listen, and offer feedback.
- Sunday, December 12, 1PM: Mighton Woods walk.
We haven't been back on these paths in a while. It's a special
area, nestled in the heart of neighborhoods, yet it feels remote. The
trails wind over gently rolling hills, through pine forests, stands of
oak, and fern glades. We'll start at the trailhead on East Street. Park
at the North Mill historical site a few hundred feet up north on North
There are also a number of other local
organizations with interesting
trail-related activities. Contact the hosting organization with any questions.
- Many 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.
