A nice sunrise hike to Neil’s Harbour beach started day 2 of Hike the Highlands Festival off on the right foot.
Beach glass was collected and hikers were able to see a small live lobsters on the beach, and thrown back in the water.
The second hike of the day was Branch Pond and hikers were able to stop at the look-off and see the view. Later visit the Branch Pond cabin and and sign the guest book. And finally see the pond at the end of the hike.
The last hike of the day was the Jack Pine trail and in the evening an excellent presentation on the Lake District in United Kingdom, was given by Craig Smith and his assistant Marsha, his favorite sister, who handed out the prizes. The Lake District was recently named a UNESCO World Heritage site in July of 2017.
