With all the snowfall this year, I decided to write about a T-accessible snowshoeing adventure I had last month. Snowshoeing is an easy sport to pick up—just head to a Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) park, strap on your shoes, and muck around.

On January 29, 17 Boston University Outing Club (BUOC) members and I embarked upon a four mile snowshoeing trek through Middlesex Fells Reservation, a 2,575 acre park that crosses Malden, Medford, Stoneham, Melrose, and Winchester you can get to from the Oak Grove T stop on the Orange Line.
