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.

    Im sorry guys but ive spent the last 20 minutes trying to figure this out...Is the "A" on the given map where I want to be, cause it seems a good bit off of the given directions? Gimme a spot on a map and I'll get there but this other info is clouding it up. Fernside B+Bs are no help nor is "Auto" rd. Times gonna be tight for me as well... Appreciate any help. )

      Ski Area is actually longer to the top. I added new starting points to add variety. My plan is to make sure we aren't always hiking the same trails

    Sorry I have to back out. I can't leave work early. Have fun. I plan on doing the same hike Sunday morning at 8:30 if anyone is interested.

    I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but 6:00 is really tough. Does anyone want to set out at 6:15 with me instead?

      I hate to be a sort-of-a-kind-of-a-mayb­e... but I offer a tentative yes to a 6:15 start and quick catch up to the slow pokes.... ))

    Hey, I'm stuck at work late today so I won't be able to make it. Have a good hike!

    I am goung to be in CA next week so I am looking for a volunteer to lead that hike.

    September 25, 2013

    Im certainly ok with people starting later. I'm going to keep the 6pm starting time to maximize sunlight until daylight savings time kicks in the first week of November. In November the start time will be 6:30 pm.

  • Greg W

    I agree 6 is tough. I'm willing to do 6:15 and do a faster pace to catch up to the group like last week.

    • Kim

      Hey Melissa, yes, I will set out at 6:15 for sure as long as I have someone to do it with - which I do, you and Greg :) Russell if you could please provide the route for us before you set out, that would be much appreciated. I hope you don't mind us getting a later start.
