Enjoy the outdoors this weekend in Wellesley with two events organized by the Wellesley Trails Committee.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, from 9-10am, explore the much discussed North 40 property near Morses Pond. This easy and enjoyable walk will take trails adjacent to the Crosstown Trail along the Cochituate Aqueduct, through woodlands and a pine forest, to a vernal pool and the community gardens. Meet at 9am at the gate to the town beach, located at the end of Turner Road, 0.3 mi. west of Weston Road.
On Sunday, Oct. 19 from 1-3pm, children and others are invited to head into the woods to have fun and explore nature during the annual Kids’ Trails Day. Children will look for treasure boxes using letterboxing (written clues). Refreshments served at the end of the activities. No registration required. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Meet at 1 p.m. at Morses Pond parking lot, which will be open for this event. From Weston Rd, follow Turner Rd to the entrance to Morses Pond, follow access road for 0.3 mi, and parking lot is on your right.
