GHTC 50th Anniversary

Hey Hikers! 

Are you interested in being a member of an Historic Hike that will see a baton carried on all of our trails in 2022.  Your name and the part of the hike that you carried the baton on during the year will be recorded and archived for future generations to marvel at.  This hike will be carried out over a few months and a completion date has not yet been set. 

If you or a group of you, are interested, please send your name and the trail you would like to be a part of to me.


Happy Hiking.

Susan McMillan
