January 6, 2022 – Join Coastal Mountains Land Trust and Pen Bay Medical Center and Waldo County General Hospital’s Journey to Health program for their first Happy Wanderers Hike on Thursday, January 6th at 10 a.m. at Fernald’s Neck. This excursion will be approximately 1.8 miles round trip and participants should bring footwear to accommodate the current hiking conditions: boots, ice grips or snowshoes if there is deep snow.
On the first Thursday of each month, the Happy Wanderers will meet at a trail head of a Coastal Mountains Land Trust preserve. The hikes will range in location from Rockport to Searsport. Each excursion will be led by a Coastal Mountains and a Journey to Health staff member. We hope you can join the adventure!
