Get Outside and Take a Hike!
The Leggett Memorial Woodlands are a great place to get out for a 1.2 mile walk in the woods.
The terrain is flat and the trails were recently cleared. Parking is available off Whitman Street, just past the intersection with Rte 62.

Deer Ticks and Lyme Disease
Unfortunately, the deer tick population is increasing in our area of
Massachusetts, not only out in the woods (where they are very prevalent)
but also in our yards, golf courses, and orchards.
Not all deer ticks carry the Lyme disease bacteria, but some do. (They
need to pick up the bacteria from an infected host animal, typically
a white-footed mouse or chipmunk.) As a result, everyone in Stow, not just
hikers on our many, wonderful SCT trails,
needs to be informed about the hazards of deer ticks, how best to avoid
being "bitten," and what to do if you, a member of your family,
or your pet has been bitten.
