Camden — Riders of all ages and abilities are invited to join Sidecountry Sports and Coastal Mountains Land Trust to celebrate the Trails Challenge with a Family Fun Ride. Bring your bike and join us at the Thorndike Brook Trail Head in Hope Saturday, Sept. 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be group rides and snacks provided. The Cold Toes Taco Truck will also be on site.

Thorndike Brook Trailhead is at 223 Hope St. in Hope. (Note: Google maps does not show this accurately.) For the Thorndike Brook Trailhead turn onto Hope Street from Route 17— eight miles north of Rockland — or from Gillette Road. The new parking lot is just past the existing parking lot for the Georges Highland Path, ¾ of a mile from Route 17. The new Round the Mountain Trail can be accessed directly from the parking lot, including a 1/4-mile accessible stone dust path.

Until the end of September, any time participants hike, run, bike or paddle they can log their miles as part of Coastal Mountain’s Trails Challenge. Every mile logged will lead to $1 dollar being donated from local businesses to support trails. For more information, or to add your miles, visit
