Western Ma Hiking Club!
Come Join us for some healthy fun outdoors!
Our group leaders: Tim McCullough, a Greater Springfield coach & unified partner; Craig Hanson, father of a Greater Springfield Athlete; & John Ford, Coach for Greater Springfield & Revs Unified Team.
This page will be updated as needed to provide information on upcoming hikes. We will plan to have 1 hike per month (if interest increases we might increase the number to 2x a month). We will target the 1st weekend of each month – exceptions: holidays, major SO events. Our idea is to have a predictable pattern.

THERE ARE USUALLY NO BATHROOMS AVAILABLE!!! So please plan accordingly.
Gear Recommendations: Hiking boots are preferred if you have them but if you don’t have them then sneakers will do just fine! Clothes you can move easily in and please bring weather appropriate gear (long pants and shirts are recommended) Other important items: bug spray, sunblock, & water! You will be expected to carry your own stuff so I suggest bringing a backpack/ draw string bag.
After each hike check yourself for ticks!!
