New Year’s Hike to Susan Hall Beard Memorial Trail, 1/4/20

Hike into the new decade with Mount Grace at Rutland Brook Wildlife Sanctuary! This hike will be led by Ron Wolanin, Central/West Regional Property Director at Mass Audubon. We will explore some of the most extensive parcels of uninterrupted protected land in Central Massachusetts.

Ron will lead us to the Susan Hall Beard Memorial Trail, a trail made by Mount Grace in fall of 2018 on the Chimney Hill Farm property. Mount Grace helped protect Chimney Hill Farm as part of the Quabbin to Wachusett Forest Legacy Initiative and Quabbin Heritage projects which conserved more than 4,000 acres of land.

The grade is challenging in parts and not suitable for young children. Please wear appropriate shoes (preferably no snow shoes), and layers. Bring plenty of water and snacks for along the way.
