ACT’s ‘Shoes & BrewsSM Heads to Cöos County in July!
DALTON – Tucked away on Dalton Mountain “Above the 15-Mile Falls” (abovethefifteenmilefalls.com) is a privately-owned preserve with farmland, spectacular views, and an interesting history. On Saturday, July 13th, you’re invited to discover part of this newly conserved parcel, not usually open to the public. Bring a friend (or several!) to walk along old woods roads and single-track trails to a breathtaking panoramic view of the CT River valley.
Join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust’s (ACT) Outreach Director Gal Potashnick alongside ACT members and property owners, Jim & Sandy Dannis for ACT’s July’s ‘Shoes & Brews’ event from 1:45 – 5pm. The ‘Shoes will start at about 1:45pm in Dalton while the Brews is set to begin at 3:30pm at Lancaster’s Copper Pig Brewery. Not able to make it to both portions? You can join either or both. If you’re only coming to the Brews, bring a friend(s)!
Make sure to wear your boots for the ‘Shoes portion of the event. We’ll gain about 400′ of elevation as we take in the flora and fauna that may cross our path. The approx. 2 mile up and back to Spruce Knob will move at a slow to moderate pace with plenty of stops for water along the way and time at the summit to take in the view. Kids are encouraged to come along and dogs are also welcome!
After the hike, the group will head over to the Copper Pig Brewery in downtown Lancaster for snacks and refreshments. The Brews portion will officially run from 3:30 to about 5 p.m., and all are welcome to come and go as needed. A big thank you to the Copper Pig Brewery for helping to support this event by not only hosting for the very first time but sponsoring this ‘Shoes & Brews!
Registration for the ‘Shoes is required and is capped at 20 participants for your safety and enjoyment, so please be sure to register ASAP. Registration for the Brews is not required but is very much appreciated to help organizers plan accordingly. Registration closes at noon on Friday, Jul 12.
