Join the Wildlands Trust‘s famous Trail Guy Malcolm MacGregor and Land Protection Director Scott MacFaden for an ambitious 10-mile trek that will begin at the Plymouth Town Forest, pass through Wildlands Trust’s recently acquired Luigi and Teotista Cortelli Preserve, and traverse down through the wilds of Myles Standish State Forest, concluding at the forest’s headquarters.

This hike is the first of a series designed in part to highlight one of the largest greenbelt corridors in eastern Massachusetts, the 18,600+ acre contiguous corridor connecting Plymouth Town Forest with Myles Standish State Forest and other large publicly owned open space tracts to the south. Big Ramble – Part 2 will be on June 11 from Myles Standish headquarters to the Massachusetts Dept. of Fish and Game Maple Springs Wildlife Management Area in Wareham.

This event is for experienced and ambitious hikers only. You must register in advance. Participants must be 18+. Registration closes on Saturday, June 3 at 6:00pm. This trip limited to 11 participants. No dogs please. Participants should possess the “ten essentials” for hiking, and must at a minimum be equipped with a backpack, water, lunch, and a rain shell. For the safety of all, we reserve the right to refuse any participants who arrive unprepared.
