Weston’s Cat Rock & 80 Acres conservation land, boasts 5.5 miles of trails through 130 acres of
forests, fields, and wetlands. Visitors can climb to the top of Cat Rock Hill, one of the highest
points in Weston, where a ski area with two tow ropes operated from 1957‐1978. The hill is
reportedly named for the bobcats that once frequented the area. 80 Acre Field is an old farm
field that, in the 1950’s, served as private hunting grounds for quail and deer. From the Hobbs
Pond dam, enjoy a lovely view of the pond, which was created in the late 1950’s and stocked
with brown trout for the 80 Acre Fishing Club. The dam was rebuilt after it was damaged by
severe rains in 2010.
We’ll meet in the parking lot at the end of Drabbington Way in Weston and join our intrepid hike
leader Jean Bonney.
