The Lancaster County Conservancy will host a public launch event at Wilton Meadows Nature Preserve as part of the Riverlands Trail Festival and Lancaster Water Week. The launch event will begin with a 3-mile hike that starts at High Point Scenic Vista, where ample parking will be available, and follows the Mason Dixon Trail to the preserve, mostly downhill. The hike affords excellent views as it traverses through meadows and woodlands and ends at the John Wright Restaurant, where the Conservancy’s featured Water Week beer will be on tap.
The Conservancy will be operating hiker shuttles from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. (free of charge, but pre-registration is required). Event participants will park at John Wright Restaurant, be shuttled to High Point, and hike through Wilton Meadows back to the restaurant and their vehicles.
The Riverlands Trail Festival on June 2 invites the community to hike, bike, paddle and play in the Susquehanna Riverlands area. In addition to the Wilton Meadows launch, the Festival will include live music and fun at Columbia Crossing and a Canoe Classic race.
Lancaster Water Week 2018 will be held June 1-9 and feature over 20 events for public participation. Water Week celebrates the unique waterways of Lancaster County, educates the public about the challenges we face and opportunities we can create, and activates people to take action in their watersheds and communities.
