Lake Chauncy

Twilight to Moonlight Walk

Enjoy the sunset across Lake Chauncy, then take a walk by the light of the nearly-full moon to get in the Halloween spirit.

Will we hear owls?

Take Fuller Way/Hospital Road off Lyman St. to the old State Hospital land and bear left. Park and meet at the lake edge, at the yellow gate between Hospital land and the Fish and Wildlife land, past the Chauncy Soccer Fields.

Walk will be 1-2 miles on wide, mostly level, unpaved trails, with one small hill.

Bring a flashlight, but we plan to keep them off most of the time.

Crane Swamp

Eskers, Moraines, and Drumlins: The Glacial Geology of Westborough

Ice Age isn’t just a Disney movie!

Learn how rocky, hilly, pond-filled New England was sculpted by a mile-thick sheet of ice over 20,000 years ago.

We will start with an orientation, hike down the Crane Esker Trail, and then walk along the Crane Swamp and Cedar Hill Trails to the Top of Cedar Hill and back. Total distance will be 4 miles with opportunities to turn back early, on woodland trails with one moderate hill.

Led by geologist Andy Koenigsberg.

Meet at the Haskell Street Ball Fields upper parking lot, GPS approximate location: 42 Haskell St, Westborough.
