What we're about

COVID-19 Update:

We will be beginning to schedule meetups for our group - with certain restrictions.

Our meetup location on the border of MA and NH poses some unique challenges for us. We need to follow the COVID-19 orders and guidance coming from both states. Luckily, the guidance is similar, and we have developed the following procedures to follow them:

- Group size limited to 10.

- Each participant must bring and wear a mask at the beginning and end of every event, and during the event if a 6’ social distance radius can’t be maintained.

The virus is still here so please protect yourself and others by following this guidance.

Hope to see you at an event soon!

===================================================================

This group is for women who want to explore the many outdoor opportunities available in southern New Hampshire and northeastern Massachusetts. Activities include walking, hiking, biking, kayaking and bird watching plus snowshoeing and cross country skiing. We’ll take time to appreciate beautiful scenery, look for signs of wildlife, take photos, and share our knowledge, or curiosity, about the natural world.

Women of all ages, sizes, orientations and fitness levels are welcome to join us. Activities will involve varying levels of physical challenge; with some easy and some more strenuous. We’ll share any challenges in a supportive atmosphere among new friends.

Redlining Beaver Brook: Weekday Hiking Series: Week 5

Beaver Brook Association: Beaver Brook Trailhead

Redlining, in the hiking world, means to hike all the trails in a given area. Beaver Brook, one of our favorite local conservation areas, has a new Redlining/Hike All the Trails program. Join us as we hike all of Beaver Brook's 40 miles of trails and explore their over 2100 acres, 4 to 5 miles each week! We will be hiking in accordance with the latest COVID guidance. — All participants must bring a mask and wear the mask whenever maintaining a 6’ social distance is not possible. ___Any participant not following the requirements will be asked to leave the event, and may be removed from the group. Beaver Brook Association is a non-profit nature education center and conservation area. Their trails traverse forest, fields, and wetlands in Hollis, Brookline, and Milford, New Hampshire. We’ll hike at a leisurely pace allowing time to appreciate the scenery and look for signs of wildlife. We’ll hike different trails each week but we will repeat some connector trails. We’ll be on the trails for up to 3 hours for each hike. You can join us for these hikes even if you can’t commit to all of them. A new hike will be posted each week. We won’t hike in extreme weather so the hike will either be postponed to the next week or to a different day. We will highlight the trails on our maps with a magic marker as the trails are completed and check them off on the trail list that is available for download at the following link: https://www.beaverbrook.org/hike-it-all-beaver-brook/ Beaver Brook members will receive a Redliner/Hike it All bandana when they have hiked all the entire trails. You don’t have to be a Beaver Brook member to join us on these hikes but becoming a member is a great way to support this awesome organization! https://www.beaverbrook.org/support/become-a-member/ You can download a trail map here: https://www.beaverbrook.org/visit-us/trail-maps-and-guides/
