"Walking in a Winter Wonderland!" Winter is a delightful season to experience the trails at Ward Reservation!

The Trustees and Ward Reservation Property Committee, in partnership with the Andover Trails Committee and Friends of North Andover Trails, will host a Winter Fun Day. Short to medium length guided hikes to different destinations on the reservation will leave periodically throughout the afternoon. Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, refreshments, and a warming fire will be available throughout the afternoon. A great chance to try out those cross-country skis, snowshoes, or sleds you got for the holidays!
