Did you know there is more to the Trustees in the Northeast than just Crane Estate and Appleton Farms? Let us show you around properties you might not have heard of to expand your hiking repertoire and learn more about the natural history of the area.
Guests of our spring hike at Ravenswood were lucky enough to sight pink ladyslippers and creeping dogwood as we hiked the propery's Great Magnolia Swamp. For our autunm hike, we will be taking the Ledge Hill Trail among magical-looking, fern-covered boulders. The fall color of the beech groves that dominate this Cape Ann property will be a delight for photographers, making every hour the golden hour.
Bring water and dress for the weather to maximize comfort. Unless otherwise communicated, Neighbor Property Hikes will convene at that property, not at Crane Estate. The starting location and other relevant details for all hikes, kayak paddles, and river boat trips will be emailed to registrants the day before the event at the address provided upon registration. If you prefer to have this information over the phone, please call us using the contact information provided at the left.
Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that thunder and lightning will be present, we may cancel a trip up to one hour in advance. If the forecast is for steady and heavy rain all day, we may decide to cancel by 3pm on the day before the event. If either of these happens, all registrants will be notified by email and/or phone with as much notice as possible.
