Mark your calendar to be part of Middleton Stream Team’s annual fall foliage hike exploring one of the wilder parts of Middleton amidst the colors of fall leaves. Locations few residents have ever seen will be part of this popular event. We will explore rough terrain around boulders left by the continental glacier 10-15 thousand years ago in the northern forests of Middleton, adjacent North Andover and Boxford. We will note signs of wildlife at ponds and streams, observe old stone walls and foundations and hear about the process of leaf color changes.
Meet us Sunday, October 27, on North Liberty Street about one-mile north of its junction with School Street; or two and one-half miles north of Maple Street (Route 62) before 1 PM. (Liberty Street becomes North Liberty going north past School Street. The meeting place is on unpaved road about one-half mile south of Sharpners Pond Road.)
Bring family, camera, water and tick repellent on this fun and learning adventure. Ticks are on the wane and mosquitos should be gone.
This roughly 3 mile woodland hike is one of MST’s Discovery Series of hikes and canoe trips for fun, learning and adventure. Watch for the next of these events during the winter and spring.
