Fall Walkabout Series

2014 Fall Walkabout Series

This Fall marks the 21st Annual SRK Greenway Walkabout, beginning September 7th with a challenging hike over Ragged Mountain. In early October hikers will summit Mt Kearsarge and by the end of October make their way to Newbury Harbor on Lake Sunapee.

Please join us!

To join the hikes it is essential that you contact the leader at least a day in advance to get details concerning where and when to meet. As always bring a snack and plenty of water, dress in layers for varying weather conditions, and consider using poles to add stability and help your knees with the downhills. Perhaps now is the time to challenge yourself to complete the entire 75 mile circuit of 14 trails; you can complete some of them this fall.
