Destination: Stone Arch Bridge and Russell Bird Sanctuary, Westford, MA
Date: March 6, 2010 (Saturday)
Hikers: OliBear, Andrew, Gramma and Dad
For the first hike of 2010, we traveled to nearby Westford, MA and visited the Stone Arch Bridge and Russell Bird Sanctuary off of Cold Spring Road. I ran these trails often when I coached outdoor track at nearby Westford Academy.
The weather was fantastic and trail conditions were mostly really good. There was some ice at the trail head but we managed just fine.
We enjoyed throwing sticks in the water, exploring and the boys even did a little running. Lame Dad with the bum hip was limping behind. We saw a very cool beaver lodge and braved the steep steps down to the bottom of the bridge twice!!
Get out there!
