Join longtime hike leaders Brian Bishoff and Denny Wheeler for a strenuous, 3.7-mile roundtrip hike with outstanding views along the Wapack Trail in New Ipswich. This out-and-back hike will take us along an abandoned road and well-maintained trail through conservation land, past the lovely Binney Pond to Pratt Mountain. The climb will sometimes be steep, with approximately 770 feet of elevation gain. Bring lunch and plenty of water, and come prepared for spring conditions, including mud and insects.

Meet at 10 a.m. at the parking area at the end of Binney Hill Road (not West Binney Road) in New Ipswich. Back by 2 p.m. Space is limited, and registration is required.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, including questions about accessibility, contact Brian or Denny.
