WFTA Monthly Walk: Jericho Forest and Maybe Peepers, April 2

Jericho, just a couple of short weeks ago. No snow now!


Join Weston Forest & Trail Association for its monthly walk this Sunday, April 2 at 2 pm at the largest of Weston’s Conservation properties (547 acres)–the gorgeous, green and currently loud (with amphibians) Jericho Town Forest. WFTA has been hosting Sunday walks for over sixty years, and the April walk is the second-to-last of the walk calendar (May 7 will be the final walk at Highland Forest, and afterwards you are invited to the Annual Meeting with speaker Brian Donahue).

Walkers will follow a 3-mile loop in Weston’s original town forest to and from French’s Field over rolling (but not steep) terrain. With luck, the peepers will be calling and the wood frogs quacking but only if we move silently and not squishily (please be prepared for muddy trails…spring…). All ages are encouraged to get outside, and the walk will take place rain or shine. Leashed dogs are welcome.

Park at Gun Club Lane trailhead. Parking on Gun Club Lane is EXTREMELY LIMITED and in marked spots only. Overflow cars will be directed to park on Warren Avenue or Concord Road and walk in on street or by rail trail. Please carpool if at all possible.

All ages are welcome! Walkers need not be Weston Forest and Trail Association members, but you are encouraged to consider joining at, as dues support the maintenance of Weston’s trails and open spaces.

Please consult the WFTA website for any last minute updates on the walk.
