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.

    Hey Russell, I thought you mentioned something last week about meeting at the Visitor Center going forward, but I don't see that reflected in the description. Just looking to confirm where to go tomorrow. Thanks!

    I am assuming that this road closure discussed in the T&G doesn't affect us:
