Directions:
If you can do kite demonstrations, please contact Don McCasland at 617-696-0562. There is VERY limited parking on the summit. Everyone is welcome to hike up or ride the shuttle van. Parking is at the Trailside Museum parking lots on Route 138 (Washington Street/Canton Avenue)
Comments:
The flying fields vary based on wind direction. The wind is sometimes turbulent. Stable kites that handle a wide range of winds do best. There are trees and stumps to anchor large kites; stakes do not work well in the rocks/soil of the summit. Call with any questions or to get more information.
