Wenakeening Woods Welcomes Walkers

by Paul Saulnier
February 6, 2012

Members of the Hopkinton Trials Club and Holliston residents listen to Jim Weiler, president of the Upper Charles Conservation Land Trust, owner of Wenakeening Woods, describe the 108 acres of preserved woodlands and the marked trails the walker are about walk.

The walk included the blue, yellow and orange trails and took just over one hour to complete. This walk began at the Summer Street entrance. Other points of entry are on Highland Street and behind Mission Springs Housing.

Pat and Robert Weidknecht make their way down the blue trail along with 35 other walkers on a bright winter afternoon. After the walk Robert spoke of the progress his committee has made in completing the bike trail from Milford to Sherborn.

The range in age between walkers probably spanned three generations.

As the walk progressed, the line stretched out to about 400 feet.

Out on their first assignment, the Goeller family ( that's John Goeller holding the HCAT camera and tripod) documented the walk for their new program, Holliston Outdoors. Watch for it soon on Holliston Cable Access Television.

Two wet spots on the yellow trail tightened up the line.

Walkers wind their way back to the Summer Street entrance of Wenakeening Woods.

Back at the parking lot, walkers from Holliston and Hopkinton share knowledge of other places to walk. For most of the walkers, this event was their first look at Wenakeening. All agreed that they would be back to enjoy the trails.
