HOPE — Riders of all ages and abilities are invited to join Sidecountry Sports and Coastal Mountains Land Trust as they celebrate the Trails Challenge with a Family Fun Ride.
Bring your bike and join them at the Thorndike Brook Trail Head, in Hope, on Saturday, September 25, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
“There will be group rides and delicious snacks provided,” said CMLT, in a news release.
The Cold Toes Taco Truck will also be on site.
Directions to Thorndike Brook Trailhead: 223 Hope Street in Hope. Note: Google maps does not show this accurately. For the Thorndike Brook Trailhead, turn onto Hope Street from Route 17 (eight miles north of Rockland) or from Gillette Road. The new parking lot is just past the existing parking lot for the Georges Highland Path (¾ miles from Route 17). The new Round the Mountain Trail can be accessed directly from the parking lot, including a ¼ mile accessible, stone dust path.
Until the end of September, any time you hike, run, bike or paddle you can log your miles as part of Coastal Mountain’s Trails Challenge. Every mile logged will lead to $1 dollar being donated from local businesses to support trails.

Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust has protected over 12,000 acres, offering 50 miles of trails for public recreation.
