Outdoor Adventures for Men provides a chance for active men to get outdoors from April through December. Most of our activities have been hiking the many wonderful trails in and around Andover, but we have done a few activities outside of the area such as walking the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, toured the State House, hiked Dog Town in Gloucester, paddled the Shawsheen River, and bicycled the Nashua River Trail.  Our trips not only get us some wonderful exercise, but enable us to share the experience with other men, and offer the chance to photograph what we see along the way. The hikes are free — usually about 2-3 miles in length and last for 1.5 to 2 hours. Registration a must.
Men are Hibernating until Spring!
