Acushnet Cedar Swamp
For some folks, you may be wondering, “Why should I join OutHounds Adventure Club, when I could just go out on my own?” Or maybe you gather a group of friends now and again for safety in numbers. Here at OHAC, we applaud those who do GET OUT–and if you aren’t joining us in person, join us in spirit. (#adventureclubchallenge) HOWEVER, if you do join us, an adventure like this weekend is one of the reasons why–getting to explore a place that few people check out on their own! Tinkle Tim is always GETTING OUT and is always on the hunt for the next NEW place. In his travels, he will often see patches of green on a map and wonder, “Well what the heck is going on over there?” He will then either research or sometimes he’ll just go and see what happens!
Acushnet Cedar Swamp is just one of those places. There are no trail markers. The terrain can certainly be quite wet. But it is exciting to navigate thru a wide swath of untamed forest and swamp and come out *relatively* unscathed on the other side!
Expect about 4-5 miles of hiking on our Standard Adventure! Lite Adventurers should expect about 2-3 miles
Standard Adventure to be immediately followed by a Lite Adventure.
