Off-the-Beaten-Path Hikes


Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Winter 2022

Spend some time outdoors this winter and join one or both of these guided hikes to locations you might not have visited before. As we explore these extraordinary sites we’ll take time to gaze at the natural formations we encounter and hear stories of historical significance along the way. All of the hikes are easy to moderate. Bring water and snacks to have throughout the hike to keep energy levels up.

Jericho Town Forest, Weston: A former farmland with vintage old roads crisscrossing through 200 acres of flat forest, various trees can be found in this quiet, peaceful setting. The walk begins and ends at a former college that is now the Campion Conference & Renewal Center, a retreat center and Jesuit retirement community and infirmary.

Camp Acton, East Acton: One of the largest recreational areas in the region, Camp Acton offers the opportunity to see native wildlife. Formerly owned by the Boston Minuteman Boy Scout Council, you can still camp out in grounds surrounded by heavy forests and swamps.

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.
