LANESBOROUGH -- Get outdoors this summer with "Nice and Easy Hikes" around Mount Greylock State Reservation. These free hikes are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 9 a.m. weekly to Oct. 12.
The easy-paced, two-hour, one- to two-mile walks are geared especially for seniors, but open to all ages. A different trail is featured each week and may include plant and tree identification, birding or wildlife viewing depending on the interests of the hikers. Reasonable accommodations may be available upon request. Sponsored by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Additionally, free Massachusetts Senior Parking passes are available at the Visitors Center for seniors over 62 that permit the card holder and passengers in the vehicle to park for free at all DCR state and urban park facilities that charge a day-use parking fee. Seniors must have a valid Massachusetts drivers license. Parking is free for vehicles with handicapped, disabled veteran plates or placards.
Wear appropriate clothing for the weather, sturdy walking shoes and bring water and a snack.
In the event of rain the hike is cancelled.
