Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

This will be a fun winter hike in the always scenic Arnold Arboretum.  Beginning at the main entrance, we'll ramble throughout the entire preserve for about four miles.  Highlights will include taking in the spectacular views of Boston and surroundings from Peter's and Bussey Hills, ascending the slopes of Hemlock Hill, and viewing the magnificent tree and and shrub specimens.  The Arnold Arboretum is a 280+ acre treasure operated by Harvard University on land owned by the City of Boston.  It's one of the finest examples of landscape design by Frederick Law Olmsted, and it's a National Historic Landmark.  Because of the vagaries of Boston weather, please dress with the appropriate outdoors gear, wear good hiking shoes and bring a liter of water.  After our extensive walk, we'll head over to nearby Jamaica Plain Center where we can schmooze at a local eatery.         

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

We will meet at the Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Boston, MA 02130.  You can use that address for Google Maps and your GPS.  Parking is free along the main road (Arborway).  It's a 10 minute walk from the Forest Hills Station of the MBTA's Orange Line.  We will meet at 1 pm on the main steps in front of the brick Adminstration/Bussey Building, which is just inside the main gate at the right.

A big thank you to Ed and Carlos for organizing this event. Weather was perfect and it was fun to be with such a great group of guys. Met many for the first time and all were very friendly. After every event I attend I can't wait for the next one. Cheers to all who attended.
