Greetings!  Darrin and I finished up the hiking marathon this week on Monday.  Knocking out the Hemlock Trail, Good Samaritan Trail and the Rotherham Trail.  I’m really liking this lower loop trail sections.   It’s got a lot of up’s and downs making this a good trail for some great exercise.  The “Hit the Trails” Festival is next weekend were we can pick up our t-shirt, patch and other goodies for completing the marathon.

Here is some info if you’re interested:

“Come and learn all about the outdoors in Fairfield Glade. We are looking forward to an exciting event again this year. We have expanded from being just about trails to include all outdoor activities available to Fairfield Glade and Cumberland County residents and visitors. Last year we had over 1,000 attendees so we are hoping for even more this year if the weather cooperates.

There will be live music and concessions stands selling burgers, hotdogs, etc. With over thirty information booths there will be plenty to interest everyone.

The Friends of Glade Trails will have trail maps for the old and new trails and volunteers available to answer all your questions. They will also provide guided walks on some of the trails.

Volunteers at all the other booths will be handing out information about their organization or activity.

If you have any questions please contact: John Conrad at
