Registration

Registration is required for this activity. Please contact leader.

Overview

Hike along the southern portion of the Westboro Charm Bracelet trail system, thru the Libbey and Wile areas, Upper Jackstraw Brook Reservation, Hidden Meadow, and Bowman Conservation Area. Distance: 6.5 miles. Moderate pace of 1.5-2 mph. Terrain is fairly flat, with typical forest footing. This event sounds like one we did a few weeks ago, but it will be TOTALLY different. This time, we'll hike in the snow, AND we'll hike backwards (in the reverse direction, actually). About the Series: The Westboro Charm Bracelet is a collection of truly "charming" trails thru open spaces and conservation areas in Westboro, Mass. and adjoining towns. While you're on these trails, you will hardly know that you are so close to town! This series of Thursday morning winter hikes will give you several ways to bag the trail segments of the WCB - shorter hikes or longer ones. Click the link below for a chart of all the hikes in the series (each requires separate registration). To cap off each hike, we'll head to a local coffee shop or deli for some refreshments and a chance to relive the charm of the trail! Those who complete all segments will receive a special token of recognition from the Chapter.

I became a hiking leader in 2011, and focus on short local hikes. I have also led some hikes in the Midstate Trail Series. In addition to hiking, I also enjoy kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiiing. Other hobbies include reading, drawing and painting, traveling, and learning about wildife and nature. My professional career was as a librarian, retiring as a public Library Director in 2015.
