Announcing the 2021 Land Trust Challenge

Last year's Canton Land Trust challenge was viewed as a success by all those who completed, so we are inviting you to this year's version. Many of the hikes are identical to last year's but two of the legs are modified and one is brand-new.

Details can be found here:

Canton Land Trust Challenge 2021

Note: on 20 July 2021 a new version of the pdf was uploaded. It contained a slightly cleaned-up version of the map for Sweetheart, and minor changes to the turn by turn directions for clarity.
