Hike at Raceway Woods - 3.5 miles

Lets try out the trail at Raceway Woods.
This is an asphalt trail but we will also wander off on one of the side dirt trails.

Raceway Woods is on Route 31 about 1.7 miles north of 72/Higgins/Main St. The parking lot is on the west side of Route 31.

Meetup's link above is crazy - use this map instead.

    I can't believe you can stay warm just by walking in the cold! Great day, great people. Thanks for a wonderful time.

    Russel, how will I identify the group? I drive a blue Honda Accord, plan on being in the parking lot a few minutes early.

      The parking lot is tiny - we will be tripping over each other as soon as we get there!

    Hi, folks, I'm unable to attend this morning's walk but as many of you know Raceway is literally in my front yard so if parking is tight feel free to park in guest parking at the "white townhouse" complex. No one will notice if you are only there for a few hours and you can access Raceway via the path behind the club house. Street parking is allowed on the even numbered side.

    Have fun everyone and stay warm!
