Welcome to Autumn

Fall is here and the nights are getting longer and cold: each day is 3 minutes shorter than the last. But this is a great time to get out on the trails! Mosquitoes are down, the trails are seasonally dry, and we’re not done with wildflowers. Look at the banner above: asters and goldenrods of all types are in full force, and some flowers, like lady’s thumb and cardinal flower have been going strong since August. For an easy, peaceful September woods walk where you might see some of these, try the Karl Mighton Trail off North Mill Street in east Hopkinton. The new Rockwood Meadows Trail on School Street near the Upton line in west Hopkinton takes you by a pretty field that sports wildflowers common to meadows, on your way to Peppercorn Hill.
