The +MPU Greater Boston Brickyard will be rucking the Cross Fells Trail on Veterans Day to make new connections and honor the sacrifices of our veteran community. We’ll also be packing out whatever trash we find along the way.
The Cross Fells Trail in Middlesex Fells is a 9.1-mile out and back hike with ~1,000 feet of elevation gain. We’ll meet at the trailhead in Melrose at 9:00am, do a quick round of ice breakers, distribute weights (in this case, extra water), then start rucking! Expect beautiful pools, Autumn leaves and sweeping vistas 🙂
What to bring:
- Bug spray
- Hat / sunglasses
- Cross Fells Trail is rocky and can be slippery this time of year, especially after a rain. We’ll go slow since we’re carrying weighted bags and will be ready to provide first-aid for sprains, strains or fractures.
- There is cellular coverage throughout Middlesex Fells.
- Cross Fells Trail has regular location markers and access roads to simplify rescue.
