We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.

Hemlock Gorge & Echo Bridge guided trail walk
May 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
May 5, Sunday (2-3 p.m.) – Hemlock Gorge & Echo Bridge
Explore the trails in Hemlock Gorge, a scenic and historic area along the Charles River at the corners of Wellesley, Needham and Newton. Get a birds-eye view of the gorge from Echo Bridge, a 70-foot high stone bridge across the Charles River used to carry Sudbury Aqueduct water to Boston. Stand under the main arch and count the number of times you hear your echo. Meet at the Echo Bridge Office Park parking lot at 381 Elliot Street, Newton.
Directions from Rt-9: Take Rt-9 toward Newton, exit at the first ramp after the I-95 interchange (to Chestnut Street), at end of ramp, turn right onto Ellis Street and go under Echo Bridge. Turn right at Chestnut Street, and at the traffic light, turn right onto Elliot Street. The office park lot is on your right, and please park at the far edge of the lot by the brick building along the river.
