Bear Hole Reservoir hike
WEST SPRINGFIELD The Bear Hole Reservoir Watershed consists of 1,700 acres of upland forest, rambling brooks, wildlife, and ponds. It is also where the former Bear Hole Resort and Restaurant was located. Join us on a easy up and down three-mile loop around the town's water supply area and pumping station on Jan. 30 from 9 a.m. to noon.
See a spectacular waterfall along Paucatuck Brook and the infamous bear's den.
The M&M trail, also known as the New England Scenic Trail, is nearby if people are interested to see where it comes through. It should be a great place to look for animal tracks in the snow.
Dress appropriately for the winter weather with boots and stabilizers if you have some, as there are some hills that could be slippery if icy.
The group will meet at the end of Bear Hole Road in West Springfield. For details, contact Sheila Croteau at 732-7254 or firstname.lastname@example.org
