Worcester may be the second largest City in New England but it also has some wilder places accessible by hiking trail. Join us for an opportunity to explore some of the more remote locations in and around Worcester. We will make note of local vegetation, signs of wildlife, and local historical tales.

Classes will be in the field, and good walking shoes or boots and a small water bottle are recommended. Students should be prepared to move over rustic and irregular surfaced trails at a modest pace.

Ideally, classes will be held in person and outdoors at the following locations in Worcester:

  • 9/12: God's Acre, Esper Ave Trailhead
  • 9/19: Kinney Woods, end of Dawson Rd Trailhead
  • 10/3: Bovenzi Conservation Park, end of Maravista Ave Fire Gate
  • 10/10: Holbrook Forest, Salisbury St Trailhead on Holden / Worcester line
  • 10/17: Asnebumskit Ridge, 20 Briarcliff St Gate in Paxton 

Participants need to be prepared to navigate trails and move over unimproved ground at a modest pace during this course.  This course is limited to 20 participants

Colin Novick is the instructor and has been the Executive Director of the Worcester Land Trust for the past 25 years, working on stewardship, monitoring, and preservation of conservation lands in and around the City of Worcester. Colin is an avid hiker and backpacker with a love for local history as it relates to the landscape.
