Yes, you read that headline correctly: the Appalachian Mountain Club is sponsoring a May 14 hike through Cambridge. The event is free for AMC members and costs only $1 for non-members.
The AMC is one of our nation’s oldest outdoor groups, and they’re perhaps best known for their maintenance of the Appalachian Trail. At this event, the AMC will be exploring the “Great Streets of Cambridge” on a sunset walk, beginning in Harvard Square and meandering through Porter Square and Huron Village. Participants are encouraged to bring a snack (though there’s plenty of delicious food to be found in Harvard and Porter Squares), and, of course, to wear appropriate shoes.
If you’d like to join, just meet up with the event’s organizers outside the Brattle Theater (40 Brattle St., Cambridge) at 6:45pm on May 14. The four-mile walk will take about two hours, weather permitting. Thanks to Cantabrigian Robert Winters for publicizing this event on his personal webpage.
