100 Years, 100 Hikers

September 19, 2015, 9:00 AM4:00 PM


Come help us celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Dartmouth Trail on the campus of Good Will-Hinckley. We hope to have 100 people come walk the trail for our 100 Years, 100 Hikers event. We are hoping 100 hikers will help us celebrate by walking the Dartmouth Trail any time between 9 AM and 4 PM and signing our trail guest book.

We will have scavenger hunts, a guided walk at 1 pm and trail maps. At the museum you can learn the history of our trails at Good Will-Hinckley. If you take a selfie on the trails, tag us and post it to our Facebook! The hundredth hiker will win a prize!! At 1 PM there will be a special guided trail walk.

The field stone Dartmouth Trail entrance has marble plaques that read 1915 and “Dartmouth Outing Club”. The idea for this trail was developed by Ray Toby, a Good Will teacher and Dartmouth alumni. The trail starts behind the L.C.Bates Museum and leads to a high point of ground where you will find a monument to Adirondack Murray, an early outdoors enthusiast and writer who influenced G.H. Hinckley’s philosophy for caring for the children at Good Will. The field stone “Murray Tablets” monument was made to look like an early pulpit and has a small stairway to its top. Have fun climbing up the monument when you hike the trails.

When the tail entrance was built the area was clear and farm land just changing back to forest. Now the trail runs through beautiful wooded areas including the avenue of Red Pines. If you do the whole Dartmouth Trail, it is not a long hike, just nine tenths of a mile. But you can walk just part of the Dartmouth Trail or go on other trails if you want to walk further in the Good Will woods.
