UNITY, Maine — Join the Waldo County Trails Coalition for a hike from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 28, starting at the parking lot of Sebasticook Regional Land Trust in downtown Unity. The hike will go to Unity College, through the college trails, along the wooded Coalition trail on the west side of Quaker Hill Road, and out to Quaker Hill Road about a mile from the college. A shuttle will be available at Quaker Hill Road to transport people back to downtown Unity at the end of the hike. Among the sites to enjoy along this hike are the beautiful footbridge in downtown Unity, a cedar grove on Woodsong Farm, some monstrous old sugar maples, and the old Roberts homestead site. Evidence of wildlife is also common.
The Waldo County Trails Coalition is a group of nine organizations working to link 40-plus miles of existing trails in order to create a continuous “Hills-to-Sea Trail” from Unity to Belfast. www.waldotrails.org
