Oak Hill Reservation - Tophet Chasm, Littleton, MA,
Join us to explore Oak Hill and Tophet Chasm, formed by glaciers with 80' high walls. We'll hike forested trails; stagecoach roads carved by iron clad carriage wheels; Cold War Era Air Force radio signal tower remains; and sweeping views with a SW vista of Boston Sky Scrapers. This is an easy to moderate 4 mile hike and is in partnership with Littleton Conservation Trust (LCT). We are honored Don MacIver, President Littleton Conservation Trust, will lead this hike. We'll meet at 12:45 pm and expect the hike will end around 4 pm. This hike is also part of the Freedom's Way National Heritage Area (FWNHA) Hidden Treasures event (see link below for more information).. Prepare for the weather, wear sturdy shoes/boots, and bring water, snacks, hat, perhaps bug spray, and a spirit of adventure. The 220 acre Oak Hill Conservation Reservation has 6 miles of trails and an elevation of 600 feet. Register with Jeanne Blauner, email@example.com, 978-202-5606.
"one of the best views in the area, a rocky prominence that makes an awesome picnic spot, plus Tophet Chasm, carved by a glacial waterfall"
