|BREAKHEART RESERVATION WALK - Saugus, MA - 11/24, 10am|
Michael writes: Burn some calories before Thanksgiving with a late fall hike over the hills with some great views of Boston and surrounding areas. Meet at 10:00 a.m., SUNDAY, 24 November, inside the visitor center at the end of the entrance road. The trails include steep but short rocky climbs, as well as 360 degree views from Boston Harbor to the Monadnocks if it's clear enough. Hike length about 5-6 miles, 3 hours or so.
Weather vicissitudes will NOT cancel the hike unless there is some sort of travel emergency declared. "Chance of showers" forecast is fine---hike will go--we can always modify route/length to bail out if desired; we're never that far from shelter---the visitor center will probably have a very nice fire going, with hot chocolate/coffee/tea available by donation.
Directions: Breakheart Reservation is located at the end of Forest Street in Saugus. From Rt. 1, exit at Lynn Fells Parkway and proceed west (from Rt. 1 northbound, you will have to turn left at end of exit) for about 0.25 miles, turning right into the reservation at the sign just past the Target store. Proceed to parking lot past ice rink; if lot is full, parking may be behind the ice rink at the shopping center rear lot.
