The March 15th Bachelor Brook Forest Trail public trek had been originally scheduled by the BWC for this past December, but was cancelled due to inclement weather conditions.
The dirt and leaf-lined trail is almost two miles round-trip in length and consists of flat portions and a few moderate and steep steady ascents and descents. Being in good physical condition to handle the terrain is necessary. Walking poles would be beneficial for those who are comfortable using them.
Meet at 12:45 PM at the trail’s dedicated parking lot on Rt. 47/Hadley Street (NOT the parking lot off Ferry St). The Rt. 47/Hadley Street parking lot is located on the left at the bottom of the hill just past the Town Athletic Fields and Town Garden. From there, the trail will be walked in its entirety to the River-To-Range (R2R) Loop Trail with a return to the Rt. 47/Hadley Street parking lot.
Wear weather-appropriate clothing and safe footwear (be prepared for wet, muddy, slippery conditions), and bring water.
Post-trek, please join BWC members for light refreshments and socializing in the parking lot.
Non-enjoyable or hazardous inclement weather/conditions will force a cancellation. If cancelled, a Community News alert will be posted on South Hadley Town’s website at southhadleyma.gov.
