Sunday January 27th
Hot Mamas and Papas “Work Off the Holiday Cookies” Hike: A long-overdue, post-holiday hike for 5 miles on The Nehantic Trail. We will hike rain, snow or shine unless sickness or injury prevents us so be prepared to enjoy a yucky day like you never have before with a bunch of crazy mamas having fun! Adults and children over ten years old only please.
Sunday February 10th
Kids Photography Hike: Gay City State Park 1-2.5 miles depending on the weather and ages of hiker-minis. There are a few nice trails that Cap’n J, Little D and the Mamas have explored and found to be very kid friendly. The kids love to follow the blazes themselves and we stop often to climb rocks and take photos of everything!! All ages welcome.
Sunday February 17th
Happy Valentine’s Day Hike for Hot Mamas and Papas: 6.4 Miles on the Pachaug Trail. Join us in our continued exploration of one of the area’s nicest trails for foot comfort. I haven’t done this section before, but so far the Pachaug Trail has shown my feet love (although not always my muscles) and offered many hidden treasures. We’ll hit a little Connecticut and Rhode Island on this hike and bring me a little closer to completing another beautiful blue blazed trail. Adults only please and we will hike rain or shine.
Sunday March 3
Bird Watching Kid Friendly Hike: Less than a mile on the Red Trail near Mansfield Hollow Lake. Bring a lunch and binoculars and we’ll stop for a long picnic and do some bird watching before the spring leaves block the best birds. All ages welcome.
Sunday March 10
Hot Mamas By The Lake Hike: 7-mile loop to the Massachusetts border on the Nipmuck Trail. This is a nice section of trail that I last hiked in the summer and really enjoyed. Expect it to be strenuous but full of beautiful water views. We’ll also come across a few campsites that you may want to come back and enjoy. Adults only please and we will hike rain or shine.
April 13 – 15th (Saturday – Monday) OR April 26th – 28 (Friday – Sunday)
Tentative 3-day backpacking trip (If you are interested in joining this hike please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please note that we are not licensed guides, just a group of people who love the outdoors. Many of us are experienced hikers but some of us are just starting out; we are different shapes and sizes, and we support each other and share ideas when we meet up for hikes. Please bring plenty of water and food, proper clothing, emergency supplies and be prepared for anything to happen (just in case). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to getting to know you!
