10:30 am - 3:30 pm Go Hike the Fells!
Click Here to Sign Up!
  
  Come join the 20s and 30s group as we go hiking in the Fells. Why drive several hours somewhere in New Hampshire or Maine, when we can hike in the fells in our backyard in Medford?! We will meet at the Bellevue Pond Parking Lot at approximately 68 S Border Rd, Medford, MA at 11:00 AM and begin the hike promptly at 11:30 AM.
  
  The hike will be 4-5 miles and take approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. You should bring water and appropriate hiking shoes (boots should be fine). For more information on the Fells, see http://www.fells.org/Visit-Trails.html We will take the Skyline Trail northwest towards the Reservoir Trail and then up to the northeastern end of the Syline Trail to the Wright Tower and back down to the Bellevue Pond When we finish around 1:30-2, we will have a picnic (bring your own lunch).
  
  While the park is in Medford, it is not the easiest to get to by public transportation. Therefore, a carpool will be departing from the Tremont Shul at 10:30 AM and leave the Fells around 3:30 PM.
