Join Green Futures for a walk through the Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve, to follow in the footsteps of Metacomet (Philip) and Weetamoe (Tattapanum)!

October’s Exploring the Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve Walk found Green Futures following what is left of the old Mowry Path that Metacom, Weetamoe and their followers, way back in July of 1675, walked to reach Tabadacason’s ferry at Winslow’ Point to cross the Taunton River.

November’s walk will find the group following their back trail to King Philip’s Spring located on the edge of a wild and once remote cedar swamp.

Meet at Blossom Road at the gate leading to Brightman Path. Brightman Path gate is approximately one mile north, east side of Blossom Road, from the Blossom Road and Indian Town Road intersection. (See the Bioresereve trail map for precise directions.) Because of the extremely poor road conditions, make sure you approach the walk meeting location from the Westport (south end) of Blossom Road.

Length of walk approximately 5 miles. Wear appropriate shoes/boots for hiking woodland paths and trails. Water and snack always a good idea.

Rain cancels walk.

Cost: Free
