Commemorating the Great Disappointment Oct. 22

Oct 17, 2016

Lincolnville — Well it's that time of year again, Yes, the annual hike up to the Millerite Cliffs.

It all begins this coming Saturday, Oct. 22, at 6:30 a.m. Participants are to meet at upper end of Maiden's Cliff Road, off Youngtown Road.

This annual hike has been taking place for 25-plus years to commemorate the yearly anniversary of the Great Disappointment of Oct 22, 1844 (Google it).

Come see cellar holes, old roads, and great early morning views. Hear a summary of what happen on that strange day. Enjoy meeting new people from all around the area, good exercise, and stories.

It takes about an hour to go up and you're on your own coming down, no climbing or ropes, just hiking.

Wear good clothing, (dress for conditions), good hiking shoes, bring water, and a camera. Stay as long as you like and dogs are welcome on leash only.

No sign up list, just show up a little before 6:30 a.m. For more information, contact Rosey at 975-5432 or roskari@gmail.com. Rain or shine.
