Join us for a Walk!

It’s been proven! Walking is one of the best ways to get active and improve your overall health. On Sunday, November 5, 2013, people of all ages are invited to join us for a walk at Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate. Our friends from the Appalachian Mountain Club, the Waltham Land Trust, and Stonehurst will lead us on a walk around the historic mansion and then branch off in two groups. Younger kids can continue on a walk around the property as we look for leaves and play some games. Other folks are invited to join the Waltham Land Trust on a walk along the Western Greenway Trail. The fun starts at 1:00 PM and ends approximately 3:00 PM. We’ll be meeting outside the mansion.

Stonehurst is located on Robert Treat Paine Drive. Look for the Stonehurst sign near the rotary by Bentley University on Beaver St. Follow the road uphill to the end and park in the lot on the right. Download our flyer here. Come and bring a friend! Rain or shine except in severe weather conditions.

Want to know more? The Appalachian Mountain Club has recently launched a program called “Outdoors RX” to help encourage people to me more active. Waltham is one of the pilot communities, with walks being organized regularly at different spots around the city.
