Bedford Town Trail Walk
Saturday March 4, 2023, 10:00 a.m.
Concord Rd. town land
Led by Bruce Wisentaner, Bedford Trails volunteer
Please join the Bedford Trails Committee for a free trail walk in the woods on March 4, 2023.
We plan to explore the town land north of Hanscom Field, hopefully crossing town line to reach Thoreau’s birthplace in Concord. Pace will be leisurely.
Expect very muddy or icy terrain, and ticks.
The walk is less than 3 miles round trip and will take about 2.5 hours.
March weather! The walk will proceed in almost any weather! Prepare for cold or warm; ice, snow, or mud; with appropriate footwear and waterproof layers. Ski poles, walking sticks, snowshoes, mudboots, and/or ice creepers may be necessary.
This Bedford town land is a mix of conservation land and undeveloped land, mainly flat, with varying trail quality.
When and where:
Rendezvous at the parking lot behind town library (parking spaces facing library DVD room) at 9:45 a.m.
Leave from the parking lot behind the Bedford Free Public Library to reach trailhead near 10:00 a.m.
We’ll park at the Concord Rd. trailhead (west end of Reformatory Branch Trail), or at Lavender Lane if Concord Rd. trailhead is not plowed out.
Note: All walks are at your own risk. Depending on the time of the year, ticks may be out, poison ivy may be active, and Covid-19 is still real. Please wear comfortable, closed-toe walking shoes or boots that can handle wet or mud, and ice and snow in the winter. Dogs on a leash and children are welcome.Follow whatever Covid-19 precautions are in force at the time.
Names and emergency contact info may be gathered.
