Join Cory Elowe for an easy stroll along the flat, hard-packed, crushed stone rail trail in Ware that is suitable for all abilities. This trail at the eastern edge of Hampshire County is newly renovated by the East Quabbin Land Trust (EQLT) is under-birded, but it traverses diverse habitats that are excellent for migratory warblers and breeding Eastern Towhees, Field Sparrows, and Louisiana Waterthrush. Depending on conditions and abilities, we will complete an out-and-back of likely no more than 2 miles total. However, as this is also a lovely place to ride a bike, feel free to bring yours to explore more of the ~ 3 miles of trail than we can cover! Recent rain can leave puddles and mud, so please wear appropriate footwear. We will meet at 7:30 am at the Mass Central Rail Trail parking area along Upper Church Street just prior to crossing the Ware River and intersecting with Route 32. Northampton-area participants can meet at Sheldon Field, 26 Old Ferry Road at 6:45 am if they wish to arrange their own carpooling, as it is about a 40 minute drive to reach the rail trail. Questions? Contact Limited to 12 participants. Please register online at least two days in advance of the trip.
