We've changed the skill level for this hike to low intermediate. Please review to see if this hike is right for you.
Great for advanced beginner to intermediate hikers, terrain for the White Triangle is similar but a little rougher and a bit longer than the Ponkapoag trail. It's a rolling loop and considered a long woodland hike. There are flat sections along with several rolling hills. Parts of the loop have sections with smaller rocks (which you can easily slip on; using hiking boots minimizes this)!
Please have have hiking boots (trail runners and strong sneakers will do in a pinch), and water. Hiking poles are optional. With "rolling hills" and LOTS of turns, please pay attention so as not to get lost.
There is a "hill climb" near the last 1/3 of the hike. Not very "steep" or "long", it takes 6-9 minutes at a slow/moderate pace. This can be by-passed if people are too tired, too dark or the weather/terrain is bad.
We start and end as a group. Those who go ahead of the group are on their own... not advised because you can easily get lost.
NOTE: Please be considerate of your hosts who are volunteers. As always your safety and enjoyment are your responsibility.
We will leave promptly @ 10:35 am. This hike should take 1:45 to 2:00 hours to complete. Please allow extra driving time for traffic delays and parking. We will meet by the picnic tables near the Park Ranger HQ/State Police. Water and restroom facilities are available at the Park Headquarters.
