2022 Hikes/Concerts

All concerts start at 6pm unless otherwise noted. Each evening will feature a mostly music program with the MWT tour troupe along with local musicians, poets, trails organizations and conservation groups. Interested in participating in an event? Email us! masswalkingtour@gmail.com

 
For Daily Hikes: We do not have a support vehicle. You must arrange your own drop off/pick up, staging of cars etc. Please bring food, water and bug spray. We like to start early. Check each date for start times. The MWT core group will be hiking sections of the AT and then road walking into each town to our concert venue. Join us for as little or as much as you’d like! Start and End locations below are where we enter and leave the trail. Some days have additional road walking for the MWT tour troupe. Call us! 508-981-6245
