Washington’s Trail & Cherry Pie Hikes
February 25 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
Join the Butler Chapter of the North Country Trail Association for the annual “Cherry Pie Hike” and “Washington’s Trail Hike.” This event commemorates George Washington’s birthday and the Virginia Colony mission demanding French withdrawal from British territory that precipitated the French and Indian/Seven Years War.
The day-long event will begin at 9:00 AM and end at 1:00 PM. It will also include 75-minute winter nature walks led by Jennings’ staff and 30-minute history hikes, where visitors can witness the 1753 musket shot that almost killed Washington at age 21. There will also be informational presentations and displays, including reenactors with clothing and equipment of the time period. Participants can choose one or more favorite hike options and enjoy a taste of cherry pie, courtesy of North Country Brewing Company.
The event is free and open to the public, although a $3 per person donation (cash only) will be encouraged for participation in the guided hikes/walks. Reservations are required for hikes and nature walks by February 23. Carpooling is encouraged, because parking may be limited. Register online.
