In response to the overwhelming desire to enjoy the wonderful trail systems that Concord has to offer, the Division of Natural Resources and the Council on Aging have developed a walking group for seniors to provide a safe and social walking experience.

Walks will generally be no longer than two miles, lasting about 1 hour.  You are always welcome to walk as long as you would like.  Town of Concord Conservation Lands are open from one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.

Below is a schedule of walks with links to trail maps to assist you on your journey.  

 All walks will commence at 1:30 p.m.
                     No sign up necessary. Just show up at the meeting places listed below!

Reduce Your Risk of Tick Encounters
  • Keep to the middle of hiking trail (Ticks thrive in shady humid areas with leaf litter and low brush).
  • Check yourself for ticks numerous times during your walk.
  • Chemically-treated clothing (permethrin) and use of Deet on skin can limit your exposure.
  • Prompt removal of an embedded tick will greatly reduce the chances of the tick transmitting disease. Use a pair of  pointed tweezers or tick removal tool.

Carpooling is always encouraged.
All litter, cans, refuse, bottles, and trash shall be removed from the Conservation Lands by the user unless placed in an official trash receptacle.  
Dogs shall be kept  under owners’ control at all times.  It shall be the duty of each person who owns, possesses, or controls a dog to remove and dispose of any feces left by his or her dog on any Town Conservation Land. Dogs are not allowed at the Great Meadow Wildlife Refuge.

There is no need to sign up for individual walks -- just show up, rain or shine. The Senior Walking Group is a self-governing group. Please feel free to communicate with each other via email. In order to add your name to the email list to keep informed of future walks and plans, please call the COA at 978-318-3020.
