Off the Beaten Path: Hike at Great Brook Farm State Park
Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Enjoy the beautiful fall foliage during this moderate (about 3 mile) hike at Great Brook Farm in Carlisle. This 1,000-acre state park features more than 20 miles of trails, notable Native American sacred sites, and 17th-century cellar holes leftover from English settlers. After we wind through the glacial bogs and hear about the longstanding history of agriculture, you can visit the farmlands that are still utilized today. Check out the dairy barn on site featuring 140 cows and the first robotic milking system installed in Massachusetts. Please note: Meeting location and safety guidelines will be emailed as part of the Registration Confirmation email. All walks meet rain or shine. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes and bring water and snacks to have throughout the hike. Great Brook Farm charges $3 for parking.
