BDN unveils new feature: One-minute hikes

Posted Nov. 02, 2011, at 1:56 p.m.

Here in Maine we’re blessed with plenty of open space, woods and water. Exploring those special places can turn into a full-time hobby, and figuring out where to go on your next excursion can sometimes get confusing.

Where? Why? What am I going to see when I get there?

The BDN is pleased to announce a new feature that will eliminate some of that confusion, and will provide folks with a constantly expanding working list of outdoor recreational options.

We’re calling the feature “One-Minute Hikes,” and before you ask the same sarcastic question that more than one editor has posed, the answer is, “No. You can’t complete these hikes in one minute.”

Instead, BDN reporter Aislinn Sarnacki will take you on a one-minute video tour of a specific location, tell you how to get there, and detail the trail options you’ll find. During the winter months Sarnacki will focus on snowshoe or cross-country ski trips. During warmer months, she’ll take you up mountains, through the woods and to some of the most spectacular vistas the state has to offer.

In addition to the video, Sarnacki will provide an informational box with vital stats about the hike, including difficulty and driving directions.

Sarnacki is a talented photographer, an avid hiker and a curious adventurer whose insight the BDN is happy to share.

The first installment takes you to Eagle Bluff in Clifton. We’ll continue to add “One-Minute Hikes” each week, and all will be archived and available at bangordailynews.com.

She’s also interested in suggestions from readers: Where do you want her to go next? Have you got an idea for a perfect “One-Minute Hike” that she should feature? You can contact her at asarnacki@bangordailynews.com.
