SPECIAL EVENT: Hike, Picnic & Maple Sugaring Experience
ABOUT THE EVENT:
We are excited to announce a collaboration with Mapletree Farms in Concord, NH for this fun and tasty way to end a hike. Maple sugaring is a true New England experience and we have a fun and unique way to share it with your furry family as well as human. Join us for the hike, picnic lunch, and maple sugaring experience, just the hike and picnic or just the maple sugaring experience. The choice is yours on how you want to spend your day with the Club! This experience is great for the human and canine “sniffers” since nothing smells better than maple syrup.
To start our adventure in Concord, we will begin with a hike on the Jim Hill Riverwalk with beautiful views of the Contoocook River. This trail has an elevation gain of 45 ft. and is 3.7 miles long. See Trail Map.
Please bring lunch and a drink for yourself and your dog(s). No glass bottles. Carry in/out only. We will stop to eat while we enjoy the view.
After, join us for a short 1/4 – 3/4 mile hike of Mapletree Farm as we learn about the maple sugaring process. The 40 acre farm has 9.5 miles of tubing to collect sap from over 1,500 taps. At the sugar shack, we will stop for a private tasting of maple syrup as well as other goodies such as maple taffy, maple sugar candy, and more. Items will also be available for purchase.
There will also be fire pit areas to warm yourself by and socialize with the community.
We expect it will be muddy and recommend bringing a towel for your dog.
This trail is rated a 1. Mostly flat and wide.
