When it comes to valentines, some might prefer chocolates and flowers, but others might like something a little more active, without any packaging. That's where the Heart Hike comes in. The Conservancy has placed 20 red hearts on the Gramwick Trail in Jaffrey. Make it a game to find them all! The Gramwick Trail is roughly a mile long, and runs alongside the Mountain Brook Reservoir. It is suitable for most ages and abilities, with mild rises through the woods and a few flat bridges to cross. Click here for the full trail guide including directions from downtown Jaffrey.
When you take the Heart Hike, bring your phone! Any picture tagging the Monadnock Conservancy on Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok (@monadnockconservancy) or that uses the hashtag #hearthikemc will be rewarded with fun stickers and entry into a raffle to win a Monadnock Conservancy baseball cap.
At the Conservancy, we strive to be a resource for our community to experience the nature we are working to protect. We hope you and your adventurous valentine will enjoy this little outdoor treat all throughout the month of February!
