A community event for all ages and abilities! Come for the challenge of 5K trail/road run or a 4-mile round-trip morning hike to Mount Cube. The hike leads to the south summit of Mount Cube where the CRT meets the Appalachian Trail. Join us for this guided hike and to celebrate ‘Family Hiking Day on the Appalachian Trail’ on the summit with families all along the 2,200 mile AT from Georgia to Maine! Hike leaders include members of the RTA and Sara Cavin from the Upper Valley Land Trust (UVLT) who will talk about conserved farm and forestland along the trail.

PLEASE NOTE: The planned 10K trail run has been canceled and there is a new 5K route due to the Creamery Road bridge closure in Orford. The 5K trail run takes place on the CRT, as well as short sections of Town Shed Rd and Creamery Rd, and starts / finishes at Rivendell Academy.
