Moraine Trail Hike
Saturday, October 25, 9:30 AM
   (rain date...Sunday, October 26)

Falmouth's longest trail, the Moraine Trail, is about nine miles long and follows the hilly and forested terrain of the Buzzards Bay Moraine. This hike will cover the lower 2/3 of the trail--about 6 miles, is of moderate difficulty and will take about 3 to 3.5 hours, including a BYO picnic lunch at the end.

Meet at Goodwill Park in Falmouth at 9:30 AM. (Entering from Gifford Street, go 0.3 miles to the parking lot on the right.) Once everyone is assembled we will carpool to the start of the hike off Thomas B. Landers Road, just inside Falmouth Technology Park.

Approximate schedule:
9:30 Arrive at Goodwill Park
9:45 Carpool to start of hike
10:00 Begin hiking south
1-1:30 Finish at Goodwill Park.

Feel free to stay and enjoy your picnic with other hikers!
