Getting tired of winter and being stuck in the house while the snow flies? With spring just around the corner, here's a great chance for you to get out with the little ones on weekday mornings. The Friends of the Middlesex Fells offers guided hikes three times a week just for parents with young children. The Tuesday hikes are for adults and children of all ages, whether they are in a carrier, kicking back in a stroller, or tromping through the woods on their own two feet. On Thursdays, you can experience "adventure" hikes, suitable for children in carriers or able to keep an adult pace through mixed terrain (no strollers allowed on these hikes). Saturdays are family hikes, with programming targeted to kids ages 5-8 who can't join the weekday hikes. Once a month, the Saturday hikes will be just for dads and kids. No registration required; a waiver, available online, must be completed and signed in order to participate. Ongoing: Tues., Thurs., & Sat., 10 - 11:30 a.m. Free. Rain or snow cancels hikes. Middlesex Fells Reservation, 4 Woodland Rd., Stoneham.
