Hikers at Goose Ridge.

Midcoast Conservancy invites all to a day of hiking on the Hills to Sea Trail and a farm-to-table lunch in Freedom as part of the third annual Goosepecker Trekker.

The Trekker route will start in Montville and end near the Freedom General Store. From there, hikers will head to the Villageside Farm in Freedom for a locally sourced farm lunch and beer from Marshall Wharf Brewing.

Hikers will meet at the parking lot of the Freedom Mill between 8:30 and 9 a.m., before shuttling to the trailhead several miles away. The hike is 3.5 miles, but a shorter, family-friendly route will also be available, complete with a nature scavenger hunt.

The $15 registration fee includes lunch and a beer. Kids 3 to 12 are $7, and under-3-year-olds are free. Families of four can register for $35.

For more information, or to register for the hike, go to or call 389-5150.
