Burn off Thanksgiving dinner at upcoming hikes

Nov 18, 2019

Enjoy Thanksgiving dinner without feeling guilty, as several organizations will be hosting post-holiday hikes to burn off the extra calories. 

First, on November 29, Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary will host its annual “Great BIG Walk It Off Hike.” 

The hike will begin at the Allens Pond field station, and will take hikers through grasslands and onto the beach along the property’s Quansett Trail. The hike will cover a total distance of six miles. 

The cost is $15 for Mass Audubon members and $18 for non-members. Pre-registration is required. Visit massaudubon.org to pre-register. 

Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust will continue the post-Thanksgiving hike offerings with its own Post-Thanksgiving Day Walk on November 30. 

The walk will be held from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at DNRT's Destruction Brook Woods property, located at 205 Slades Corner Rd. 

The walk is free to attend, and pre-registration is not required. Visit dnrt.org for more information.
