Join us in Easton on Saturday, August 25 for ACT's next Summer 'Shoes & Brews event. Discover a new route to take in and through your Cooley-Jericho Community Forest (CJCF) with ACT as your guide! The CJCF encompasses 840 acres in the northwest corner of Easton, sharing boundaries with Sugar Hill and Landaff. We'll be taking a slightly longer and more challenging route up through and around the CJCF with Linda Moore and Jessica Bunker at the helm. Enjoy this spectacularly beautiful and rugged property and take in its stunning views along the way.
We'll then head to the brand new Iron Furnace Brewing in Franconia for snacks, refreshments and some time to socialize with your fellow hikers! All are welcome (bring a friend!) and are free to come and go as needed.
The walk will start at 2 p.m. and last approximately 1.5 hours. We'll be moving at a moderate pace along old woods roads and ACT volunteer maintained trails. We'll stop to take in the views and make discover the flora and fauna of the CJCF in late summer. Kids are encouraged to come along and dogs are welcome!
After the walk there is a 30 minute window for the group to make it's way to the brand new Iron Furnace Brewing in Franconia to toast the summer with old friends and get to know new ones. We'll reconvene there for snacks and refreshments at approximately 4:00 p.m. all are welcome (bring a friend!) and are free to come and go as needed. The event will officially run from about 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. but you're invited to stay and enjoy the brand new brewery!
