Event Description: 

James L. Goodwin used to bring his family up to Orchard Hill to have picnics, let’s carry on the tradition! Orchard Hill is a beautiful area that is away from the busy-ness of the center.  We will meet in the center parking lot and carpool to a closer location.  From there we will take a leisurely 2 mile hike out stopping along the way to admire Black Spruce Pond and some other landmarks along the way.  We will break to have our lunch then walk back.

Approximately 4 miles in total.  Don’t forget to pack your picnic lunch and a blanket!
