Great Brook to Thanksgiving Forest Walk

Saturday, November 20, 2021 12:12 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Twenty members of the TOHG Walking/Hiking group met at 10:30 am at the Great Brook parking area in Carlisle.  We started off under clear blue skies, no wind and 40 degree temperature.  We walked through  a portion of the Great Brook State Park and then crossed into Chelmsford's Thanksgiving Forest, where the trails had all been swept clean.  The Chelmsford Boy Scouts take care of this area. 

We passed the River Meadow Brook and found the Thanksgiving Rock formation where a picture was taken of the whole group.  After walking back as far as the small bridge that crossed the brook we divided into two groups; one headed back through the corn field and then into the pine forest area finishing at the picnic area.  The other group crossed the brook and continued on the other side to view the abandoned cabin area as well as the old dam and mill site, eventually ending at the picnic area where the rest of the gang had arrived. 

Three new members joined us on this walk: Joanne H, Margaret L and Karla S. Welcome!

We all socialized and wished each other Happy Thanksgiving.  The total time walking was about 2 hours for about 3.5 miles, and the leaders were Chris B and Meredith P.
