Discover Boston's Stony Brook Reservation

Skiing Date: Sun January 7, 2018

Explore this 475-acre gem of a state reservation within the city of Boston, a sister to the Middlesex Fells Reservation, protected for use by the public since 1850. We will ski the circuit and perhaps climb one of the hills to take in a view of Boston and/or the Blue Hills.

Knapsack with a change of mittens/gloves, an extra layer, and room to store a layer should you discover you have overdressed. Scarf, neck warmer or balaclava -- something to protect face from frostbite. Hand and/or toe warmers recommended. Suggest you drive with ski boots on so they are warm when you arrive.

Participants should be intermediate skiers and prepared for a two-hour ski in the cold and wind, though tomorrow is supposed to be warmer than today. The loop should take about 1-1/2 hours to complete.

Additional parking across the street next to Connell Fields -- near intersection of Smithfield Road and Enneking Parkway. See map:

Note: Typing "Stony Brook Reservation Hyde Park" in your GPS will take you to the headquarters not the meeting place.
