Join as many as a hundred RRCT members, neighbors, trustees, toddlers, grandparents and friends to hike the loop trail, share some cheer at the summit, sip hot cocoa, toast marshmallows, and hoot or howl at the big orange rising moon.

2020 year brings RRCT’s 9th annual mountain-top moonrise trek and bonfire. All the fun happens at Pisgah Hill Preserve74 Dougherty Road, New Gloucester near the Pownal town line.

The sun sets at XX pm and the moon rises a few minutes later. Plan to start your hike between X:00 pm and X:00 pm and plan on 30 solid minutes of hiking time on this 1.5 mile lollipop-style loop trail (1 mile loop with a 0.5 mile stick). The trail is well-marked and typically lighted with luminaries for the return. Gentle elevation rise and a rickety bridge on the trail requires some effort; assistance for the elderly or toddlers may be required for one or two steep ledge steps. Bring snowshoes or sturdy boots with grippers, poles, a flashlight or headlamp, a blanket, water, and lots of good cheer. We’ll provide marshmallows and more.

The trailhead has a small parking lot which fills quickly. Most vehicles line the shoulder of Dougherty Road. Click here for preserve details and maps.
