By the way... 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. John Muir said it best.

- Saturday, March 21, 10:00AM: Peloquin Woods
walk. This is one of Hopkinton's newest trails, on property surrounding
the Cobblers Way development. While only 16 acres, it borders 70 acres
of former Weston Nurseries, now Legacy Farms South, providing a
connection to the large Legacy Farms trail network. The property feels
much larger than it is because ¾ of the outer perimeter is
adjacent to open space with no visible development. Though small,
there's a lot to see here. Because of limited parking space available
at the property, we'll carpool to/from the trail. Meet/park at the leader's house, 28 South Mill Street.
- Sunday, April 26, 1:00PM: Breakneck Hill,
Southborough. Breakneck Hill is a beautiful area. There are some very
nice trails, complete with a fantastic picnic location with a nice
view. The property is maintained by the Southborough Stewardship
Committee who provides conservation-based stewardship of the land,
balancing multiple conservation and passive recreational
uses. Meet at the parking area across from 71-73 Breakneck Hill
