Join us for a leisurely mile and a half walk, for all ages, to enjoy the peacefulness of the coast of Maine. We will meet at the Backshore Trail parking area and walk old roads out to the shoreline trail with views of Holbrook and Islesboro Islands. We will break at Goose Falls (a reversing tidal waterfall) and return by Back Road. Snacks and hot drinks provided. Please bring appropriate footwear and clothing for the conditions. Leashed pets are welcome.

This annual event, in partnership with the National Association of America's State Parks, inspired nearly 55,000 people across the country last year to collectively walk over 133,000 miles on the guided hikes, that included snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, on New Year's Day.
