Ascent Trip Report

Entered 3/17/2018. This day hike was done with Outdoor Pursuits Winter 2016-2017.

This is one of many times I've summited Holt Hill whether it be by myself on foot or by bike, with my family, or with Outdoor Pursuits each term. This is the time hiked up Holt Hill with Outdoor Pursuits in the winter term 2016. We began at the Bicentennial Elm on campus and hiked along the Salem and Prospect Streets to Ward Reservation where we followed an access road to the summit. Usually we play a version of "museum" at the summit where a chosen person stands on the solstice stones and everyone else must try to touch the center stone without being seen by the chosen person. Don't group to one side! You can see Boston from the meadow at the summit.
