First Day Hike with WFTA: Cat Rock and 80 Acres
Celebrate the New Year with Weston Forest & Trail Association (WFTA) on Sunday, January 1st at 2 PM and explore Cat Rock and 80 Acres. The walk will be easy, with a more challenging option for those who want to hike to the top of Cat Rock. WFTA has been hosting Sunday Walks for over 60 years.
Learn a little about the history of Hobbs Pond, 80 Acres, farming in Weston, the abandoned ski slope, and the origin of the names Cat Rock and 80 Acres. In addition, you get the joy of a First Day Hike and starting the year with positive vibes (total editorial comment).
The walk should last one and a half to two hours. All ages are welcome, as are dogs on leashes. Walkers need not be Weston Forest and Trail Association members, but you are encouraged to consider joining which you can do here.
Please be sure to check WFTA’s home page for any last-minute changes – the walk will run rain or shine. The current forecast for Sunday is overcast with possible showers and a balmy 50 degrees.
Meet at the ballfield at the end of Drabbington Way.
