Wachusett Sunset Hike Every Wednesday.

This is going to be a weekly scheduled hike every Wednesday. The start time is based on sunset. The goal is to arrive at the summit for sunset and be back on Administration Rd before full darkness. This is a moderate difficult hike and we will keep a pace everyone in the group is comfortable with. You should always bring Water bug spray and a light. Hike will go rain or shine, no penalty for anyone that bails out on a rainy day. The start will always be at the base of administration road which is off Westminster Rd. I'll change up the route each week so it doesn't get stale. Each hikes total duration will be 2-2.5 hours. Any questions, suggestions or complaints direct to me.

Russell


Directions : Follow Mountain Rd. about a mile past the Visitors Center/Auto Rd. to Westminster Rd. Westminster Rd. will be on your right, just after the Fernside B&B (Yellow building on your left)
Continue down Westminster Rd. about 3/8 mile, Trail head on your right at the bottom of Administration Rd.

    First time hiking Wachusett. The trail was very nice. Russell did a great job making sure everyone got up and down safely. He seems to know the area very well.

    Are dogs welcome?

    July 2, 2013

    • Russell

      Yes. My dog will most likely attend any hike I lead. So long as the dogs don't get too numerous or trouble some they will be welcome. Wachusett does require leashes and that you pick up after them.

      also they have the platform blocked off the past few days hopefully that doesn't last long.

    I'm generally hiking Wachusett with Rex every day, anyone interested in joining me is more then welcome. I usually hike a bit earlier whenever I finish with work(time varies)
