The Medomak Valley Land Trust’s Young Friends of the Watershed group will host a solstice hike on Clarry Hill at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21. Clarry Hill, which forms the divide between the Medomak and St. George Rivers, is one of the highest points in both watersheds and has stunning vistas of the ocean and of the western mountains. The walk will take about one hour. This is a perfect opportunity to socialize with other conservation- minded individuals between the ages of 21 and 45 and explore a beautiful place on the longest day of the year.

To get to the Clarry Hill Trail from Route 235, turn left onto Clarry Hill Road. After a half mile, turn right to stay on Clarry Hill Road. After .8 miles, turn left onto Elmer Hart Road. Follow the stone road to the trail head sign on the left. Participants can also carpool from the MVLT office in Waldoboro but should call ahead to coordinate. For additional directions, call 832-5570, or

Young Friends of the Watershed is a group geared to uniting young adults who share a common interest in conservation issues. Members have the opportunity to meet new friends, enjoy happy hours and social networking events, explore the watershed, take part in outdoor activities including kayaking and hiking excursions, and make an impact by volunteering for trail building, clean-ups, and other activities.

For additional information about this event, volunteer opportunities, or MVLT’s services to landowners, please contact the land trust’s Waldoboro office at 832-5570 or
