Join us for a guided hike to the summit with Maine Guide Jeanne Christie. Along the way learn about the history of the park, species identification and tracking. We will be hiking to the summit on the Northern Loop Trail, and return to the base down Terrace Trail, where hike participants will be able to get warmed with a nice cup of Hot Cocoa. Wear warm clothes and sturdy footwear. Meet at the upper parking lot. Plan on one to two hours; Snow shoe rentals available.
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.
