Guided hike on the River~Link Trail with Coastal Rivers

Thu, 05/12/2022 - 10:15am

Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust’s “Spring Saunters” series of guided hikes continues in May with a walk along the River~Link Trail in Newcastle and Edgecomb from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.

The old farm roads and varied forest paths of the River~Link Trail traverse the side of Mount Hunger, wind past old stone foundations, and cross beautiful wooded streams. Gladu will point out spring wildflowers along the route.

This five-mile, one-way walk will require two cars per party. Hikers will need to park one car at the River~Link North parking lot on River Road in Newcastle (just south of the Dodge Point parking lot, on the opposite side of the road), and then proceed to the McKay Road parking area for the start of the hike.

This program is part of an ongoing guided hike series, free of charge thanks to member support. Registration is required at
