About Hike Trustees Meet Up: Rocky Woods

Join fellow Trustees Hikers for a morning of exploration and community bonding on the scenic landscapes of Rocky Woods. Share your passion for the outdoors, exchange hiking stories, and make new friends along the way. Whether you’re a seasoned hiker or a novice trail enthusiast, everyone is welcome to be part of this inclusive gathering.

Trail Highlights:

With six and a half miles of trails winding through 491 acres of varied terrain, Rocky Woods is a year-round destination for outdoor lovers and a prized habitat for songbirds, bullfrogs, beavers, and painted turtles.

Rocky Woods has one foot within the Charles River watershed and the other foot within the drainage of the Neponset River. The area’s high water table forms wetlands throughout the reservation, and these varied habitats attract songbirds, particularly the towhee, with its “drink-your-tea” call.

What to Bring:

  • Comfortable hiking attire
  • Sturdy footwear
  • Water bottle
  • Camera or smartphone for capturing memories

*We will be providing complimentary coffee and snacks. We will also have hiking poles, microspikes, and/or snowshoes available to borrow if the weather is snowy.

While this is a free event, please register to reserve your spot and ensure you receive the pre-event email. We look forward to exploring Rocky Woods with you!
