Trip dates: Saturday, August 19, 2017
9:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Join us for a 4.1 mile Crow Hills Hike and learn the story of Mary Rowlandson and Redemption Rock. Who was Mary Rowlandson and who were her captors? What was the setting and when did this event take place? We'll meet at the Redemption Rock trailhead at 9 am and learn the answers to these questions as we hike the Midstate Trail over rolling terrain with a snack break by a pond in Leominster State Forest. Sturdy shoes are a must (no open toe sandals) as there is a short section of rock scrambling. Suitable for children seven and up. Wear comfortable clothes and bring bug repellant, at least one quart of water and lunch/snacks. Group size limited to 15 so register early: Pam Faustine, pfaustine@princeton-ma.us , 978-505-7031.
