In June our group hiked the Cobb Brook Trails and also Bickford Pond. The Cobb Brook hike was done in four groups, with a total of 35 hikers between the Saturday, Sunday, and ‘Senior Hike’ the following Wednesday.
The Open Space Committee has nearly completed the signage work in this new hiking area. Everyone loved the two beaver ponds. The Bickford Pond hike was done with one group of 22 hikers. We split up with three hiking options through. One group did the easier 3.5-mile hike around the pond, and the two other groups did seven miles; one with a longer road walk, and the second on a more adventurous bushwhack through the woods!
Our schedule moving forward is below. We hope that you can join us for one or more of these adventures! Contact TrailAroundPrincetonMA@gmail.com or call Rick at 978-660-8664 to register.
