New Meetup: Ski Lincoln Conservation Lands from the T

From: Yoris
Sent on: Thursday, January 22, 2009 10:42 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Boston Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoe Meetup Group!

What: Lincoln Conservation Lands

When: January 31,[masked]:15 AM

Where: Lincoln, MA Commuter Rail Station on Lincoln Road

Take the T on a Saturday morning for a 5 - 8 mile ski through the many conservation lands of Lincoln. A ski trail leads around Sandy Pond, over the grounds of the DeCordova Sculpture Park and along Walden Pond. The more ambitious can take a side trip to Walden Pond and to the steepish slopes of Mount Misery and obtain views of the Sudbury river in winter.

The train arrives from Boston at 9:12AM, hence the early start. Return trains leave at 12:05PM and 2:40PM. Drivers can park at the Commuter Rail lot. It's a short walk from the train station to where we can ski.

We'll break into up to four groups, depending on desire and ability each with a map. The trails aren't groomed, but will probably have been tracked by the many locals who'll have gone before us. Unfortunately, the only way to get maps was to order them from the town, so can recoup my costs if a few of you buy a $5 map from me.

It looks like the snow will stay until at least that date. We're even due to get a little more. Please park in the commuter rail lot or at the Lincoln Elementary School on Ballfield Road. If you park at the Lincoln Elementary School give me a call. It's a half-mile ski or walk from there to the train station or you can wait for us there, because the trail leads along it.

You may be able rent equipment at the nearby bike & XC shop, called the Lincoln Guide Service, but I've had trouble calling them.
