Join North Star Adventures LLC and Sweet Maple Corner Arts for a sunrise hike on the Summer Solstice, June 21. Departure time is 3:30 a.m. from the Bald Rock Trailhead on  Youngtown Road.

The hike is approximately three miles round-trip. The first mile follows an old carriage road with a gentle incline. The last half-mile takes you up the Bald Rock trail. You will be greeted with spectacular views of Penobscot Bay and islands that appear to float on the horizon waiting for the warmth of the sun.

At the summit hikers will be joined by Artist Rachel Littlefield, from Sweet Maple Corner Arts. She will guide participants in the use of pastels to create drawings of the morning sky as the sun makes its first summer appearance. Coffee, tea and baked goods will be served at the summit.
