Last hike of 2019 Flash Hike Becket Quarry

❄🦌Last Hike of 2019🦌❄
Flash hike Sunday December 29th 1:00 Becket Quarry on Quarry Road, parking lot is plowed. Meet at the lot and we will hike in to the quarry, then up the stone steps for a panoramic view, then I will take you to the epic vista most cant find looking East and North. Ice and snow on the trail, spikes mandatory, not good for kids due to the hairy heights. 30 min to the quarry in and back. #westernmasshilltownhikers #hikethehilltowns
