Dartmouth, MA 02748
On Super Bowl Sunday, the Westport Land Conservation Trust (WLCT) and The Trustees of Reservations (TTOR) will be hosting their annual Super Bowl Walk, a hike that extends from the Slocum’s River in Dartmouth to the Westport River in Westport.
Conservation efforts in the area make it possible to do this 6+ mile hike. Here’s your chance to experience sections of trail not normally open to the public – and get a little fresh air before the watching the Super Bowl! And for a special treat, the Westport Rivers Winery will be opening its doors to greet hikers at the end of the walk with discounted wine and beer by the glass only for $5 and 20% off all take home wine for hikers, whether it is one bottle or many.
The walk will begin at 11 a.m. at the Slocum’s River Reserve parking area across from 253 Horseneck Road in Dartmouth, about 1.4 miles south of Russells Mill Village. Parking for this program is provided thanks to Sylvan Nursery. NO OVERFLOW PARKING will be allowed this year. Those interested in participating in the walk MUST register in advance. A firm limit of 150 hikers has been set for this program.
Thanks to Whaling City Transit, transportation will be provided from the winery back to your car with plenty of time to get home to watch the big game. Be aware that trails will be icy, snow covered, or muddy. Proper WATERPROOF footwear is required, and dogs will not be permitted for this walk. A suggested donation of $10 per person will help support the work of WLCT and TTOR.
A special thanks this year to the many trail volunteers and private landowners who make this program possible year-in and year-out. If the weather is questionable, cancellation information will be disseminated 24 hours in advance of the walk.
