HOPE — In recognition of National Trails Day, a walk up Hatchet Mountain will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 5. Those interested in the hike will meet at the Hope Town Office.
After climbing the mountain, the group will descend and cross to the Morey Hill cemetery where some of Hope’s earliest settlers are buried. Gail Curtis and Lisa Scofield will conduct the hike and share their knowledge of Hatchett Mountain and the local history of Hope.
Hikers are advised to bring their own water and may obtain further information about the walk from the Georges River Land Trust office at 594-5166.
