Midcoast Conservancy offers two fall foliage hikes

Thu, 09/26/2019 - 8:45am

Two Midcoast Conservancy hikes will give participants a chance to take in the glorious Maine fall foliage in October.

The first, on Thursday, Oct. 3 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Clarry Hill Preserve in Union, will offer a peek not only at leaves but also fiery blueberry barrens. Participants will hike 1.3 miles to the top of Clarry Hill to get amazing views; if it’s a perfectly clear night, the view may even include Mount Washington. This will be a moderate hike, and participants should come prepared with water and comfortable shoes. For more information, go to https://www.midcoastconservancy.org/events/clarry-hill-hike/

Friday, Oct. 18, join Midcoast Conservancy for a hike on Hogback Mountain in Montville from 2 to 5 p.m. At the summit, participants will break for a snack and take in the spectacular views; attendees are encouraged to bring water and binoculars. The hike, which will require moderate skill on some steep inclines, will total about five miles. After the hike, all are welcome to convene at Lake St George Brewing in Liberty for beer and pizza. For more information, go to https://www.midcoastconservancy.org/events/hogback-mountain-fall-foliage-hike/
