Lincoln Conservation Land Walk

|LINCOLN, MA CONSERVATION LAND WALK - Lincoln, MA - 1/19|
Michael writes: Saturday's forecast has some snow or rain in it, but doesn't look like enough to need skis or snowshoes to get outdoors and enjoy themselves, so let's plan for a hike through Lincoln and Concord conservation lands on SUNDAY, 19 Jan.---but in the winter it's always advisable to have traction devices in case you need them, but they're not mandatory for this place.
Meet at 10:00 a.m at the Lincoln schools complex off Lincoln Road, in between Lincoln center and the train tracks.
This area is very popular for XC skiers, but hikers will have trails mostly to themselves except for around Walden Pond. Fairly gentle terrain--although likely to have some muddy spots after these heavy rains and melted snow-- but we may go as far as Walden Pond and back, so be prepared with food and water, gear and energy for up to a 10 mile, hike, 4 to 5 hours, if the group wishes.
Directions: From Rt. 128, take Trapelo road west towards Lincoln. In Lincoln center at the stop sign, turn left onto Lincoln road. Turn right into the Lincoln schools complex about a half mile down the road from the stop; proceed straight a short distance until the first left driveway into the parking lot by tennis courts and the Smith School.
This hike is also accessible by commuter rail from Boston; the school complex is a very short walk from the Lincoln rail station. Contact me for further details if interested.
