We'll be heading to Lynn Woods, 30 mins from Boston, for a 4-5 mile hike with ~300 feet of elevation gain.

This is a beginner-friendly trip, and also a sleep-in friendly trip! We will be practicing using microspikes for traction.

This hike features a view of a Walden Pond, but not the one that inspired the book by American writer Henry David Thoreau!

Current weather forecast is for a slight chance of snow, with a low of 18F (-7C) and a high of 34F (1C).

Please edit the "Lottery preferences" in the menu at upper right to show whether you have a car or are willing to drive a rental car, and how many passengers you could take!
