The Trailblazers are at it again. The Senior Center’s group for active seniors has planned more fun outings over the next few months. Almost 20, in fact. 

Offerings cover more hikes, biking/walking a Cape Cod trail, exploring outdoor art, and a horseback ride. Plus, summer boating is back with 13 chances to kayak, paddle board, peddle boat, or canoe at Hopkinton State Park this summer. The hikes and biking are free. Other activities come at a suggested donation price ranging from $3 – $40.

The horse ride and boating each have limited participation, so pre-registration is especially important. But signup is requested for all of the outings. You can stop by by the Senior Center front desk or call 508 229-4453.

Below are the broad strokes. If you are interested in joining them, you should check out important additional details from their flyer. Click on the image below right or open the full pdf flyer.
