We'll travel along the edge of Upper Highland Lake on Highland Lake Trail and Long Trail, look from the foot paths down into long lasting vernal pools on Moose Run, pass fields of ferns on our way to look out across a beaver pond, then walk up to the slightly higher elevations of the park by the Fire Tower, along NEMBA Trail, Turkey Trail, and Black Bear Trail, then pass an old stone basement on the old carriage road, named Darling Trail. We'll quickly pass through the campground onto Fisher Trail, then back around Upper Highland Lake to the parking lot. Afterward, everyone is invited to Elmer's Store Restaurant. Elmer's is located at 396 Main Street, Ashfield, MA
