Loon Echo Land Trust offers a Sunset-Moonrise Hike at Bald Pate Mountain Preserve

Take advantage of the increasingly longer days with Loon Echo Land Trust staff as they lead a Sunset-Moonrise Hike to Bald Pate Mountain on Saturday, March 31. This early evening meets at the Bald Pate Parking Lot on Route 107 in South Bridgton at 6 p.m. for the 45-minute scramble to the summit.

Sunset will occur at 7:05 p.m. and the full Pink Moon will rise at 7:25 p.m. This second full moon of
March is also referred to as a Blue Moon. Along the way participants will learn about how Loon Echo and a group of concerned citizens rallied to permanently protect Bald Pate Mountain, the various critters that call it home, and what this special preserve’s future management looks like.

Participants are encouraged to bring water, snacks and a headlamp for the return trip. Snowshoes or traction devices may be required depending on weather. Please check Loon Echo’s website and Facebook page for updates.    

This hike is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To sign up for the hike contact Loon Echo Stewardship Manager, Jon Evans at or 207-647-4352
