Now that summer is here, we are planning a few members-only hikes for later in the season. Don’t worry if you aren’t a member yet – all you have to do is head over to our support page and give as little as $1 to be eligible to attend. There will probably be:
- An “Introduction to the Hike Peaks” hike, led by Kirsten B. Burbank of the Sandy River Land Trust and Carson Hinkley, a Madrid resident whose family has lived in the town(ship) continuously since the early 1800’s.
- A hike/bushwack up the new Berry Pickers Trail to the Saddleback Mountain ridgeline, which will be an official Appalachian Trail Side Trail when completed. At this point the trail has not been fully cleared, so this one might get pushed into the early fall. We are very excited to have this trail opening up an additional route to access Saddleback Mountain.
Check back here soon for updates on these hikes.
