Hike in Orland Set for July 26



ORLAND — Hikers are invited to join leader Scott Bennett Sunday, July 26, at 9:30 a.m. for a 3.5-mile hike up the north side of Oak Hill in East Orland.

A gentle ascent of 400 feet or so leads to an unparalleled vista of the Great Pond Mountain Wildlands’ Hothole Valley parcel and great views all the way to the Camden Hills.

The route traverses several forest types, from hardwoods to hemlocks to alpine flora.

The hike will depart from the Wildlands South Gate on Route 1 (just south of the Route 176 Surry Road intersection).

For more information, call Scott at 825-4709.
