Off-the-Beaten-Path Hikes: Foss Farm, Carlisle


5 in stock


Spend time outdoors this summer and join one or both of these guided hikes to locations you might not have visited before. As we explore these extraordinary sites, we’ll take time to gaze at the natural formations we encounter and hear stories of historical significance along the way. These hikes are easy to moderate. 

Foss Farm/Carlisle, MA  – Foss Farm is a 57-acre parcel purchased in 1971 for conservation and recreation purposes. Mr. Foss farmed the land growing asparagus and other crops. The house that Mr. Foss owned on Bedford Road was built in 1739 by one of Robert Blood’s grandsons, Simon Blood. Today, parts of Foss Farm continue to be used for agriculture. There are community gardens and a local farmer grows feed for his dairy cows. There are several hiking trails that we will do, including one that closely follows the Concord River.
