Hiking for Health Series: Mount Nonotuck
September 18 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Fall is approaching and with it the start of New England’s brilliant foliage season! 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 third in our 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 3 miles up-and-back to the Eyrie House Ruin on Mount Nonotuck (elevation is 827 feet) in Holyoke on Saturday, September 18, from 9 am to 12 pm. It will be led by Kestrel Land Trust’s Conservation Director, Mark Wamsley.
Mount Nonotuck is the northernmost peak of the Mount Tom Range and part of the larger Metacomet Ridge, which stretches from Long Island Sound nearly to the Vermont border.
Participants must be able to climb steep slopes and navigate uneven ground.
With the delta variant pandemic issues on the rise, Kestrel is now requiring anyone attending a Kestrel event (both inside and outside) to be fully vaccinated.
This hike is intended for new members of Kestrel Land Trust. If you became a Kestrel member* in 2021 or would like to play a role in welcoming new members, register now as space is limited to 10 participants and this event is sure to fill fast. (* an unrestricted gift of any amount makes you a Kestrel member for 1 year)
Registration is now full.
