Get outside together for the 6th annual hike at the Cooley-Jericho Community Forest (CJCF) enjoy the trees in the throws of autumn with your friends and neighbors.
The Cooley-Jericho, created in 2012, encompasses 840 acres of forest land in Easton and shares boundaries with Sugar Hill, Franconia, and Landaff. Four municipalities worked together with a land trust to protect a shared community resource for the project and was the first of its kind in the nation. Cooley-Jericho is one of the largest unfragmented forests in the region outside of White Mountain National Forest. ACT is offering a hike with two groups so that people of all ages and abilities can explore the Cooley-Jericho; both hikes begin at 10:00 a.m.
Both hikes will be somewhat challenging, containing steeper sections and moderate elevation gain, hikers should be prepared for the terrain. The group will move at an easy pace with many stops to observe and enjoy nature. Kids are encouraged to come along and dogs are always welcome!
This program is free and open to the public, with a suggested $5 donation to support ACT’s land conservation efforts. Advanced registration is required. Looking for more info? Click here!
