Hiking for Health Series: Mount Toby
July 10 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Summer is upon us! Here’s a chance to get out for a vigorous small-group hike led by a Kestrel staff member to a local peak and on a trail that may be new to you.
This hike is the second in our new Hiking for Health series. Join us for a 3-hour trek to get your blood flowing and enjoy a “peak” experience in a conservation area here in the Valley.
This hike will be approximately 5 miles up-and-back on Mount Toby (elevation is 1,269 feet) in Sunderland on Saturday, July 10, from 8 am to 11 am, led by Kestrel’s Community Engagement Coordinator, Marilyn Castriotta.
Mount Toby is the highest summit of a sprawling collection of mostly wooded hills and knolls that rise from a distinct plateau-like upland in the towns of Sunderland and Leverett. Although the summit is wooded, there is a fire tower, open to the public, which provides 360-degree views.
Participants must be able to climb steep slopes and navigate uneven ground.
Space is limited to 10 participants and registration is required. This program is free, though donations are appreciated!
