~ inspiring an appreciation of the outdoors ~

    It's spring, the days are long, the sun is out and it's time for a hike. We've put together a robust hiking schedule that progresses from easy to more difficult hikes throughout the season and then tapers back off as we get into fall. We're going to do a few days of stewardship as well as enjoy the great trails here. We encourage hiking at your own pace as these trips will be unguided. Some of the trailheads are small so when that's the case we'll set up a carpool from the Gem Theater. Keep your eyes peeled to this website, our facebook page, and the Bethel Citizen for changes or surprises throughout the season.   

    All hike start at 5PM on Thursdays but are subject to change.

    Thank you and see you out there.

    Twas the Night Before Christmas,
    And all through the Town,
    The creatures were stirring,
    As they looked all around,

    At the families enjoying a holiday walk,
    Meandering the Pathway and enjoying their talk,
    At the snowshoers climbing the hill at Mt. Will,
    For the joy and the excitement of this real thrill.

    For without recreation available to all,
    Our world would be smaller, just not as tall,
    We're connecting communities, families and friends,
    To experience the wonder of a day at trail ends.

    So get out today,
    Take a walk or a hike,
    Perhaps, you can ride that shiny new bike.
    Visit the woods and the fields with your skis,
    Be thankful for the birds and the sky and the trees.

    Merry Christmas from Mahoosuc Pathways, your connection to your community, your family, your world.

    If ever there were a day when a recreational trail was necessary, it's Thanksgiving.    From a casual stroll on the Bethel Pathway with the kids and grandparents to a more adventurous hike up one of the local mountains, Bethel offers something for everyone.  This year we are "lucky" to have a foot of fresh new snow on our trails.  The benefit of a multi-use recreational trail is that it magically transforms from a bicycle path to a cross country ski trail or from a hiking path to a snowshoe trail.

    When dinner is over today, take a walk, a hike, a snowshoe or a ski and be thankful for the beautiful place that you are fortunate to celebrate your holiday in.

    Mahoosuc Pathways wishes you and your family a happy, healthy holiday season.
