Meeting Time: We will meet at Dysart’s at 6 pm on Saturday, August 27th. We should be back at Dysart’s around 9:30 pm.
Meeting Place: We are going to meet at the Dysart’s at the intersection of Rt 46 and Rt 1A. From there, we will decide how many vehicles we are going to take to trail head at Bald Mountain.
Directions to trail head: From Dysart’s, we will take the Upper Dedham Rd. to Bald Mountain Rd. Bald Mountain should be easy to find because it’s right off of Bald Mountain Road in Dedham. The trail head, which at first looks more like an access road, is on the left near the junction of Bald Mountain Road and Johnson Road. There is a farm on the right at this junction. We will follow the wide “trail” or access road to the base of the mountain, ignoring a few smaller trails, and follow the wide ski trail up, following the power lines.
Here are the things that you will need:
- A BAG LUNCH/DINNER
- A WORKING FLASHLIGHT OR HEADLAMP
- any weather appropriate clothing you may need
- bug spray?
- a small bag / backpack to carry your supplies in
