Fox Den Ramble. Our first event of 2017 – on Saturday, April 29, starting at 9:00am – will be a rugged hike through the Fox Den Wildlife Management Area between West Street and the Middle Branch of the Westfield River. WHS board member Ben Brown will lead us to cellar holes, a former house foundation surrounded by myrtle, and natural landmarks of interest.

This walk won’t be easy. The trails are overgrown, footing is uneven, and we will likely descend to the Middle Branch, dropping and regaining over 500 feet of elevation. Before descending to the Middle Branch, participants will have the option of returning to their cars.

RSVPs are required. If you’d like to join us, please email Evan Spring at Admission is free. Make sure to bring water, snacks, and sturdy waterproof shoes, as we will hit muddy patches. The meeting place will be the gate at Parker Four Corners, where Almon Johnson Road meets West Street. Almon Johnson Road is impassable, so take Kinne Brook Road to Curtis Road, and at the end of Curtis, turn left on West Street. Parker Four Corners is about a half-mile ahead on the right. Here is the spot on Google Maps. The walk will take approximately 3 hours.

    Wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the walk thru North Cemetery with some local legends. What a great experience and fantastic way to see/hear history in action. All the dead did a great job recollecting about their lives especially “Kat Rice”! Kudos to Maddy.
    Hope there are more walks in the future.
