Join BTLT on the second Thursday of June, July, August and September at 5:15pm for a casual trail run on BTLT trails!
These outings will be casual trail runs, not races. At each location we will designate running loops with a meeting point about 0.75 to 1.0 miles away from the parking place. We will re-group there. Those that wish can return to the parking place (having run 1.5 to 2.0 miles). Others may wish to continue on to tackle other loops. Most runs cover 3 to 4 miles in total.
We need a rough idea of the number that will be attending each week, so please register for this free event. (Registration can be completed at: http://www.btlt.org/events/trail-run-series-august/)
We plan to meet at 5:15 pm and finish by 6:15 pm. We will congregate at the meeting point for a few minutes for orientation, but generally we will not wait for “late-arrivers,” unless someone has let us know in advance.
Bring bug spray! No dogs, please!
Each person younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Each person is responsible for his/her safety. We will have one or two people with cell phones for emergencies.
We plan to run rain or shine. If thunder/lightning is predicted, we will cancel and post on our Facebook page by 5:00 pm.
Septeber 13th run is at Bradley Pond, Topsham.
Bradley Pond Farm is a privately owned working farm in Topsham that is permanently protected by a conservation easement held by the Land Trust.
Two miles of trails are open to the public, providing views of hayfields, stone walls, and Bradley Pond from the hush of deep woods.
Visitors may see deer and other forest mammals, waterfowl, and forest and field-dwelling birds.
Please respect the landowners’ privacy, stay on trails, and observe use restrictions. The trails are available for hiking and skiing (no vehicles) and there is no water access to the Pond.
Directions to Bradley Pond Farm: End of Bradley Pond Rd, Topsham. The road turns to dirt and curves to the left at the property entrance. There are two gravel parking areas, marked by kiosks, both to the left of the driveway. The preserve is located on privately owned land that is open to the public for hiking and skiing – please stay on designated trails.
