Join Coastal Mountains Land Trust, and Pen Bay Medical Center and Waldo County General Hospital’s Journey to Health program, for a Happy Wanderers Hike, Thursday, February 3, at 10 a.m., at Ragged Mountain Preserve, Thorndike Brook Trailhead. This will be a 2.5-mile loop excursion that includes the Round the Mountain Trail and the Georges Highland Path.
Participants should bring footwear to accommodate the current hiking conditions: boots, ice grips or snowshoes if there is deep snow. Journey to Health has snowshoes available for participant use. When you register on Journey to Heath's website, indicate if you would like snowshoes.
The Happy Wanderers will meet on the first Thursday of each month at the trailhead of a Coastal Mountains Land Trust preserve. The hikes will range in location from Rockport to Searsport.
Each outing will be led by a Coastal Mountains and a Journey to Health staff member.
“We hope you can join the adventure!” said CMLT, in a news release. For a full Happy Wanderers schedule, visit www.coastalmountains.org.
