MONTVILLE, Maine — The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition will journey to Montville for a hike on Sheepscot Well-spring Land Alliance property on Sunday, Nov. 9.

Alliance Director Buck O’Herin will lead the group on a new trail along Goose Ridge. The trail wanders through forested areas and near brooks, and offers vistas of faraway lakes. Both short and long hikes will be offered.

This outing is another in a series of visits to neighboring conservation properties in the area organized by the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition. The hikes are free and open to the public.

Participants should meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Belfast public parking lot behind Dudley’s Diner on Main Street to carpool to Montville. They should wear orange clothing and dress warmly. Bring water, lunch, rain gear and extra layers. For more information, call 338-4427 or 338-1147.

The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition plans monthly outings to familiarize the public with the beauty and unusual features of the Belfast Bay’s watershed, which covers 69,657 acres and comprises four smaller watersheds: the Little River, the Passagassawakeag River, the Wescott Stream and the Goose River.

It includes all or parts of Brooks, Frankfort, Knox, Morrill, Northport, Searsport, Swanville and Waldo, as well as the city of Belfast.
