Georges River Land Trust hosts a hike by the light of the full moon Friday, July 31, at 8 p.m. This short hike will take place on the Ridge to River Trail, a section of the Georges Highland Path located in Searsmont. Participants should bring a headlamp or flashlight and wear footwear and clothing appropriate for the conditions. Meet at the Canal Path/Ridge to River trailhead parking area on Ghent Road, just off Route 131 in Searsmont. This event will only take place under a clear sky; call the land trust at 594-5166 on the day of the event if the weather is questionable.

The Ridge to River Trail is one of the newest sections of the 50-mile Georges Highland Path system of conservation trails. It connects the Canal Path at Robbins Lumber to the land trust’s Gibson Preserve with views of the Georges River Valley from the top of Appleton Ridge.

This event is part of the Georges River Land Trust’s Walks and Talks, a series of events that provides interesting topics to explore, a variety of adventures and activities for people of all ages, and are free and open to the public.
