Join the Fall Foliage Hike scheduled for the SNETT on Saturday, Oct 15


SNETT Fall Foliage Hike: Saturday, October 15, 11am, Grove Street

Hello fellow SNETT lovers!  

We're gearing up for a great fall hike this year--right in the middle of peak foliage!  Come join us on Saturday, October 15th, at 11:00am (Grove St. Trailhead) as we set off for a leisurely hike down towards Bellingham and back.  Strollers and pets are most welcome!  You may want to have a jacket, and you'll definitely want to have a camera to catch all the fall colors.  🍂  And 67 Degrees Brewery will be open by the time we're back--not a bad start to the season!  😉

From your friendly, neighborhood Rail Trail Committee
