>Announcing a new Meetup for The Chestnut Hill Walking Meetup Group!
>PARK WALK - KENDRICK ST, NEEDHAM, MA
: Sunday, September 19,[masked]:00 AM
: $1.00 per person
: Cutler Park
>Newton, MA 02458
>The parking area for Cutler Park is located in Needham MA. But the park itself
>extends into Dedham, Newton, Brookline and Boston. The park consists of a few
>hills and a lot of trails near an 800-acre marsh along the Charles River and beside
>There is a large lake near the parking area and the more challenging singletracks
>are located between it and route 128. The singletracks nearest to the highway go
>up and down Cutler's only hill. They are quite fun and include one roller coaster
>There are many more trails however, stretching out into the marshes on plank
>bridges. So expect to spend a bit of time exploring. If you do that you'll eventually
>make your way out of Cutler Park and into Riverdale Park, Millennium Park, The Brook
>Farm Conservation Area, and Newton's Nahanton Park. Succeed in doing this and you'll
>do a 16-mile loop. Cutler Park itself has about 9 miles of trails. MAP DCR Website
>Southeast Mass NEMBA has been doing trailwork at Cutler for many years. These
>pix were taken at a recent trail day where we replaced some of the planks on one
>of those long bog bridges. Future Trail Days will be listed here.
>Cutler's singletracks range from moderately technical to the most buffed singletracks
>imaginable. There are also some wide dirt roads that are fine for beginners and
>families. The road around the lake is the best example of that. My favorite trails
>are on Powell Island which is located after the first long wooden bridge. The trails
>on Powell's Island roughtly form a figure eight, are very fast and are fun to ride
>in both directions.
