Safety First!

This is a Level 2 hike hike due to distance and terrain. I would like to have us back by 3 at the latest due to the time change, it will start to get dark by 4 PM.

Cormier Woods is a 175-acre (71 ha) open space preserve and historic 18th-century farm complex in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, USA, within the Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor. The property is named for James Cormier, the former owner of the property. It was acquired in 2008 by the land conservation non-profit organization The Trustees of Reservations.

The reservation includes 3 miles (4.8 km) of hiking trails, farmland, woodlots, wetlands, a farmhouse, barn and sheds. It is open to hiking, picnicing, cross country skiing and hunting (in season). The reservation trailhead is on Chapin Street in Uxbridge.

Legal orange-REQUIRED

Headlamps- probably a good idea

Parking is limited so I am limiting it to 10 people. It would be good if you could carpool.

Hiking boots/sturdy hiking shoes would be appropriate for this activity. Must bring sufficient water for the hike, appropriate clothing (no jeans or cotton!) and bug spray.
