❄🦌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

❄Flash hike today at Bryant Homestead in Cummington on the Sugarbush Trail, still significant snow on the ground. This trail is not blazed! Obvious to follow except at the very end. Remains of an old sugar barn and giant pines are highlights of this trail. Across the road there is a kiosk and the Rivulet Trail, next on our list! ❄ #westernmasshilltownhikers #hikethehilltowns Winter solstice day all around! #thetrustees

A wonderful walk in the cold to a Winter Wonderland. People ice fishing, ice skating, and just marveling at the colors from our first sunset of Winter on this shortest day. From our 2017 Silent Winter Solstice hike at the DAR State Forest
