Newport Wilderness Society is hosting a First Day Hike at Newport. We’ll hike the Upland Trail, which is approximately 2 miles.  The hike itself should take a little over 1 hour and there will be a campfire afterwards near the shelter at parking lot #3. We will provide coffee and beverages, but don’t feel bashful about bringing refreshments or treats to share at the campfire!

We may be walking through snow or ice, so wear appropriate boots that may include yaktrax or microspikes

No reservations are required; simply show up at parking lot #1 by 9 AM.  The hike will start promptly at 9. (After the hike we will relocate to parking lot #3 and walk to the campfire ring.)

Mark Glasser is our hike leader. Questions? Email Mark at markglasser8@gmail.com.
