Babes in the Woods Program
Since 1999, Babes in the Woods is the Friends of the Fells’ free popular weekday family hiking program. Caregivers carrying babies are welcome on these fun guided hikes through the Middlesex Fells Reservation. Babes in the Woods is an adult-paced hike designed for parents who carry their children. These hikes are not recommended for young children who walk.
We recommend that you bring along snacks and drinks, and make sure to dress for the weather—depending on the season, some trails may be muddy or icy in spots.
Location changes weekly.
Pre-registration is now required.
Everyone has to wear a mask (except children under 2) and maintain 6 feet away from each other.
Hikers must move to the side of the path to allow others to pass.
Please note that hikes are not accessible for strollers.
For our participants' comfort, we don't allow dogs to hike with us.
Our walks are cancelled only if it is too hot, too cold, or raining too hard.
