GMOW – Snowshoe/Hike at Cathance River Nature Preserve

  • February 8, 2019
    12:00 am

***Note, this event is on Friday, February 8 but the exact meeting time will be sent upon registration.

Celebrate the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend by joining us for a fun winter outing in Topsham at the Cathance River Nature Preserve. Michelle Moody of AMC will lead the group on a snowshoe or hike (based on conditions) on the trails at the Preserve –  this is one of her favorite hikes in the area. The trails will lead us down to the river where the ice formations can be magical in the winter. We will follow along the river and do as many trail sections as the group is up to. We will then loop back to the parking area. Watch for animal tracks along the way and enjoy this beautiful woods walk.

Trails are narrow with some short steeper sections. Snowshoes required if enough snow. Microspikes or similar traction may be required if icy. Plan on about 2-3 hours out.

Please let us know if you need to borrow snowshoes.

You’ll have a chance to learn a bit about the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust and the history of this wonderful Preserve. It’s also home to the Cathance River Education Alliance. A staff member of CREA will join us for the outing and open up the Center for us to visit. So join us in this wonderful winter wonderland.

To register: Please email leader info on level of experience, gear and a phone contact.  Directions will be provided upon registration.
