ACT’s Mid-Week Cabin Fever Walk in Bethlehem!
BETHLEHEM – Got cabin fever and want to get outside for a nice ramble through the woods? If so, join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) on Wednesday, February 12 at 12:30 p.m. for a very special hiking tour at the Rocks Estate (owned by the Society for the Protection of NH Forests) on a part of the property not usually open to the public.
Our hike will be a guided historic tour along the Mile Path, a trail at the Rocks usually off-limits to visitors. We’ll be led by Rocks Estate Manager, Nigel Manley, who will share some of the property’s fascinating history and point out some natural features along the way. The walk is an approx. 1.5-mile loop with about 200 feet of elevation gain; snowshoes are required and you should bring trekking poles. All ages and abilities are welcome, but please leave your pups at home for this one.
ACT is delighted to be partnering with the Rocks and the Society for the Protection of NH Forests on this walk. A big thanks to them for being such great collaborators and friends to ACT and the community!
Registration for this event is required and is strictly limited to 15 participants, so please be sure to register ASAP as the hike will fill up quickly. Registration closes at noon on Tuesday, February 11. To sign up today go to act-nh.org/education-events. The walk is free but donations are welcome and gladly accepted.
