Winter Hiking Series - GOAT HILL LOOP TRAIL

Winter Hiking Series starts now!  Meet at River Bend Farm Visitor Center 287 Oak St., Uxbridge, MA 01569 for this 3 mile round trip hike that loops up Goat Hill and back.  This forest trail ranges from easy – difficult in some areas and has a variety of interesting views.  The upper side of the loop is hilly and steep and may be more strenuous if icy or snow covered.

This is the first in a series of three winter hikes is an introduction to get hikers comfortable enjoying the trails year- round.  Winter hiking offers a unique chance to take in some interesting views that is hidden by foliage during other seasons and is a great way to beat the winter blues!  Each guided hike will begin with a short safety message.  Be prepared for cold weather, dress in layers and avoid cotton clothing.  Appropriate footwear is required, consider bringing hiking poles and ice cleats.  If conditions permit, bring snowshoes and hiking poles.  Carry drinking water and snack.  All ages able to complete the 3 or 7 mile hike during colder weather welcome.  We will hike unless weather creates unsafe conditions.
