RUMFORD — The Mahoosuc Land Trust is hosting their annual Whitecap Gourmet Hike at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, land trust member Jolan Ippolito said.

Ippolito said that every year the Mahoosuc Land Trust invites hikers for a “moderately strenuous hike” up Whitecap Mountain, where they are asked to bring “water, hiking and rain gear, and a gourmet dish of your choice for sharing with other hikers.”

“’Gourmet’ means anything that’s an upgrade from a peanut butter and jelly sandwich,” Ippolito said.

Ippolito said that the Whitecap Gourmet Hike has become a popular event because of the view the trail offers at its summit, and because of the “company and food that is shared.”

Those participating are asked to call the Mahoosuc Land Trust at 207-824-3806 or email Ippolito at [email protected]
