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.
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
Hopkinton town trail committee meetings (at Hopkinton Town Hall, open to the public)
- Wednesday, March 10, 7PM: Monthly meeting
- Sunday, March 21, 1PM: Whitehall Woods walk. This is a beautiful SVT
property, with trail links to a state wildlife sanctuary and Upton
State Forest. We'll walk the main trail, and also explore a side loop
through the sanctuary that passes the remains of the Hopkinton Stone Mound.
If there's still significant snow on the ground (on the first full day
of Spring!), this may be another snowshoe walk. Otherwise, boots will
do. Dogs are not allowed in the wildlife sanctuary, so no dogs on this walk, please. Park/meet at the trailhead on Fox Hollow Road (off Pond Street).
There are also a number of other local
organizations with interesting
trail-related activities. Contact the hosting organization with any questions.
- 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.
