Registration is closed

Join Meredith for an approximately 3 - 4 mile round trip walk on the Reformatory Trail starting at the Parking Lot in Bedford to the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Concord and around the Dike Trail along the Concord River.  We will pass the marsh area where the Lotus blossoms are in full bloom as well as cardinal flowers and hibiscus along the river. 

MASKS ARE A MUST. Be sure to wear good walking shoes as part of the trail can be uneven and rooty.  Water, sunscreen/hat, bug repellent and a snack.  There may be bicycles on the Reformatory Trail, but they are not allowed in the Refuge.

Depending on our finish time we can do some outdoor dining in the area for those that care to.

Please try to carpool as there is limited parking at the lot (max 8 cars and maybe 2 more on the grass).
