Trail Maintenance at Middlesex Fells

Located in portions of Malden, Medford, Winchester, Stoneham, and Melrose, the 2,575-acre Middlesex Fells Reservation is one of the first reservations created by the Metropolitan Parks Commission. The preserve conserves an area containing woods, wetlands and watersheds for public use. Middlesex Fells provides an urban oasis with connections leading to nearby Boston. Today, the Middlesex Fells Reservation contains several thousand acres of woodland and watershed protected from development and open to the public. The reservation surrounds Spot Pond, and its wild and rocky landscape offer visitors a variety of recreational activities. MA DCR and Friends of the Fells manage the Reservation, restore native habitat, and create trails to allow visitors to access natural and historic sites. Volunteers are incredibly important in maintaining this urban wild! For this project, volunteers will close trails, create new ones, and install erosion control measures to preserve trails and protect water quality. Tasks may change pending size of the group and needs of the day, but come prepared to do some heavy lifting in the woods!
