Pathfinders group offers walks throughout Down East
Post Date: Updated:
WASHINGTON COUNTY, Maine — Pathfinders, a volunteer group, invites the public to join them on a series of organized walks on Sundays throughout September and October.
All walks are approximately two hours long and may be canceled due to inclement weather. While these group outings are a great opportunity to visit new places and meet new people, all walkers must assume responsibility for their own safety. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain, and consider bringing water and a snack.
