The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition has announced two different hikes for all ages in December.

On Wednesday, Dec. 14 Cloe Chunn will lead a group up Bald Rock Mountain in Lincolnville. The group will walk for 2 miles, with the last quarter-mile steep, although it’s worthwhile for the views.

Participants should meet at the YMCA in Belfast to carpool, or at 10 a.m. in the Bald Rock Mountain parking lot at the corner of Route 52 and Youngstown Road. Wear layers and call 338-1147 for appropriate footwear or other information.

On Wednesday, Dec. 28, Libby Wilson will lead a group along the Georges Highland Path. Hikers are to meet at the Thorndike Brook access on Hope Street in Rockport, off Route 17 across from Grassy Pond.

The group will walk 1.2 miles to Thorndike Junction and may elect to go further for views of Hosmer Pond, Grassy Pond, and Mirror Lake. Call 548-2941 for more details.

The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition plans regular outings to familiarize the public with the beauty and unusual features of the Belfast Bay’s watershed, as well as neighboring conservation properties.

The watershed covers 69,657 acres and is comprised of four smaller watersheds: the Little River, the Passagassawakeag River, the Wescott Stream and the Goose River. It includes all or parts of Brooks, Frankfort, Knox, Morrill, Northport, Searsport, Swanville and Waldo as well as the City of Belfast.
