Kids Pirate Treasure Hunt on the Red Sandstone Trail

Sunday, October 13, 2013 - 1:30pm
Join the Laurentian Chapter of ADK and Nature Up North for a pirate-themed adventure! A little known band of Pirates from the Caribbean lost their gold along the Red Sandstone trail. Learn the legend and look for their treasure. This 3 mile walk on mostly level ground includes a hot dog and marshmallow cook out at midway point along the trail (all food provided). Along the way we'll learn about frogs, beavers, hydropower, the history of the region and much, much, more... LIMITED TO 24 participants. Contact Blair Madore to reserve your spot.
