Jeannie is still having technical difficulties so here's the scoop for tommorrows hike .
A 4 mile moderate hike with trailhead at Newton Reservoir 1 mile down on
S Royalston rd across from Market Basket.
Hiking around Newton Reservoir to Buckman Pipeline to Buckman shelter along Millers on Red bridge trail up Bearsden rd back down to Buckmans crossing to Newton Reservoir.
This is my favorite summer water hike and first time connecting these trail connections .
Of added bonus NQTA, VCS senior consultant Jeff Taylor , Mount Grace and Bill Rose are leading a effort to save Newton Reservoir from being taken over by Glossy Buckthorn and Jeff and Athol conservation members will be walking with us to 3 hot spots on Newtons Reservoir to start this collaberation process and educate us on the nastiest of invasive species.
Should only take a couple of minutes and we will get in a nice long summer water hike in .
Meeting as usual at Y at 9 o'clock
Tonight at 6 o'clock is NQTA's Gathering with navy seal Cody Potosky of Battlefrog ORC
( Obstacle Race Course) will be speaking as we are looking to align our developing OIC Lucky 13 Fit Trail to this national organization to crest a yearly fit trail race event of our own .
As always you are welcome to join us .
