In support of the national effort to slow the 

spread of COVID-19, we have closed our 

facilities with a tentative opening day of

September 11, 2020.

However, the entire trail system is open 

for hiking.

Parking is available at the main gate only.

Please practice social distancing on the trails 

and respect the space of others.

Stay Safe!!

Noble View Outdoors Center Trail Adopters Needed!

Do you like walking in the woods? You can learn to care for the trails you enjoy by becoming an 

AMC Trail Adopter right here in Massachusetts. AMC’s Adopt-A-Trail program enables volunteers

to take ownership on a section of specific trail and oversee basic maintenance of that trail. 

The prospective adopter chooses from a list of open trails in the Noble View trail network and 

plans at least one work trip per month to check on trail conditions, clear drainage areas, 

lop the corridor, and dig into small projects as well as report on larger trail issues. 

AMC trails staff will offer a fun, hands-on daylong trail work training free of charge. 

Staff will also be available regularly to answer any questions and continue developing skills further.


Taking on the stewardship of a trail is a privilege, and it is important that the adopter take 

the responsibilities of maintaining the trail seriously. As an individual, the volunteer can 

work on the trail when it suits their schedule and may bring friends and family along for 

the experience too! Interested parties should contact Aaron North, Southern New England

Regional Trails Supervisor at by Friday, July 31, 2020. A trail work 

training is tentatively set for the weekend of August 8, 2020.
