Current and Upcoming Events

Snowpatuck / Wompy Winter Fest 2022 - Come celebrate winter at Wompatuck State Park with our annual Wompy WinterFest! Friends of Wompatuck and Southeast MA NEMBA will be hosting a month-long event with suggested self-guided routes for mountain biking, hiking, and trail running.

Wompy WinterFest carries on no matter what the weather! However, pending snow and trail conditions, we will have a snow groomed loop in addition to other route suggestions. Most routes start at the Visitors Center (196 Union St Hingham, MA 02043).

In addition to the month-long event, we will also have a one day gathering on Sunday, February 6th (permit pending). This one-day event will include the DIY routes (no arrows this year) as well as some led rides, hikes, and runs. A free chili lunch will be available at the Visitor Center beginning at 11 AM (until it runs out).

For more information, stay tuned to the Friends of Wompatuck social media at: facebook.com/groups/Friendsofwompatuck

Next meeting
- Monday, Feb 21 at 7pm - will be held online via Zoom. All are welcome. If you would like to participate or listen in, please email info@friendsofwompatuck.org for a link.

About Wompatuck

Wompatuck State Park is located in Hingham, MA - just 35 minutes from downtown Boston. Rich in history, this land was originally the property of Indian chief Josiah Wompatuck who deeded the land to English Settlers in 1665. During WWII and the Korean War it served as an ammunitions depot for the U.S. military. Today it is a 3,526 acre park that extends from Hingham into the neighboring towns of Cohasset, Scituate, and Norwell.

For directions to the park or more information about Wompatuck State Park, visit the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation website.
