A walk at Maudslay State Park is long overdue.

I've been trying to schedule a walk at Maudslay for months and finally have a day to get this done. We'll meet at the parking lot on Curzon Mill Rd., Newburyport at 10am. Depending on the weather we will take the longer trails and be out for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. I usually try to keep the pace a little more than "not too intense", about 2- 2 1/2 mph. This time of the year some trails will be wet so wear appropriate footwear. Here's more info from there web site.

The former Moseley family estate on the Merrimack River, this park features 19th century gardens and plantings, rolling meadows, towering pines, and one of the largest naturally-occurring stands of mountain laurel in Massachusetts. Most breathtaking are the ornamental trees and masses of azaleas and rhododendrons that bloom in May and June. An exquisite place for walking, biking, horseback riding and informal picnics. Special Use Permits may be obtained for wedding ceremonies and similar programs.

Cultural events are a regular feature during the summer. During the winter a portion of the park is off limits due to roosting bald eagles, but the remainder provides excellent cross country skiing and winter walks.

The Parking Fee at Maudslay State Park is $2.00. Annual Passes are available for purchase.

    Anyone interested in touring/hiking the wooded trails of Longwood Gardens in Beverly? There are trees from all over the
    world, and rare perrentials. I see that Ange organized
    a hike/garden tour there last year...

    I live in Salisbury, so I'm always looking for people to walk/hike with! Also, powerwalking Salisbury State Reservation/beach is fun too!

    Well run--thanks Ted! And a great group of people.

    That was a fun group of people to hike with. The weather was perfect and lunch at the Beachcoma topped off a great day. Maudslay is such a treasure, it never gets old walking there. We'll do it again in the fall at peak foliage. I hope to schedule another event soon.

    • Ted

      10am isn't early, I was up at 5:30 this morning to play golf. It's only early if it's getting up for work.

    • Ted

      If you decide not to go please change your RSVP.

      April 27, 2013

  • Ted

    Also, I keep forgetting to do this, I'm asking for $1 per person that will go to our organizer Angie to offset the cost of the website. So, bottom line, $2 to park, $1 for the website. See you all in the morning.

  • Ted

    I have 26 attending so I'm going to stop it there. If you change your plans please change your response to NO so someone else can go. It gets too unmanageable with more. If anyone is interested in going for lunch ("chowda" and a drink) after I'm suggesting the Beachcoma on Plum Island after the hike.

    I am wondering if we should meet outside the small building with rest rooms at the back end of the lot on the right because of a lot of cars and people on Sunday so we can find each other.

    April 26, 2013

    • Ted

      We don't usually have a problem finding anyone. Look for a group of people and ask for Meetup.

    My son may be interested in coming in this w/his girlfriend-am I allowed to bring two extra people??

    April 26, 2013

    I'm so glad I can finally make one of the walks; been working so much that I was missing them all. See you there.
