Wednesday Winter Walking Series

Come one, come all, to our first ever walking series! We know finding the motivation to get outside in the dark days of Maine winter can be tricky, and we know there is strength in numbers, so we invite you to join us on a casual weekly walk, between 2-4 miles. Most routes will feature a combination of trails and urban walking. No registration required.

We will be posting meeting locations monthly, so check back here, on our events calendar, and social media for updates.
