LRCT offers hike along scenic Brook Walk

MOULTONBOROUGH — On Monday, October 21, join the Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) for a fall hike along the Brook Walk, a historic and scenic trail within LRCT's Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area.

The Lakes Region Conservation Trust has conserved over 22,000 acres in the Lakes Region in over 120 properties since its founding in 1979. The Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area in Moultonborough and Tuftonboro, totaling over 5,000 conserved acres, is the largest property owned by LRCT. The 30 miles of trails spread throughout this conservation area are maintained by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of LRCT volunteers.

During this guided excursion, participants  will hike beside impressive gorges, following the course of Shannon Brook as it flows over rapids and seven spectacular cascades. LRCT's knowledgeable guides will share some of the interesting history of the Brook Walk, including when and why it was first established by B.F. Shaw long ago and some of the poems of the great poets who were inspired by it. Historic photos and postcard images will also be shared with participants along the way.

This easy-moderate 2 mile hike will follow the Brook Walk to the Shannon Brook Trail, looping back to Shannon Pond. The total elevation gain during the hike will be 300 feet. Participants will be asked to arrive at 9:45 a.m. with a 10 a.m. hike start time. The trip will return at approximately 11:30 a.m.

The Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) offers guided excursions ― hiking, paddling, and snowshoeing trips ― year-round on and to conserved properties throughout the Lakes Region. All LRCT guided excursions are free to all.  For more information about guided excursions or the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, visit www.lrct.org.
