The Winter Story Walk™ is Posted!

A Porcupines Promenade

The Story Walk™ program combines the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors in nature, literacy and family time by taking children’s books and posting them, in pieces, along a recreational path or hiking trail. Discover this winter's feature: "A Porcupine's Promenade" a new book by local author Lyn Smith and illustrated by Jamie Hogan. Its a great way to break in those new boots, snow shoes, cross country skis, crampons and other winter gear! 

To find the story start at the base parking lot (where Mountain Road meets Ring Trail) and follow the pages along the western side of the Ring Trail (left at first fork) to Witch Hazel Trail and finish near the summit. Enjoy!
