Walk the old Johnson trolley line, visit a farmers market and the world's largest microdairy, the site of all trans-Atlantic voice and electronic communication during World War II, and explore the newly completed LHT in Mercer County.  We will stop early in the walk for the best ice cream around, all natural and made fresh on site.  After the first ten miles, things get rural in a hurry and there is no mass transit for about 15 miles.  Plenty of bathrooms!  Those who finish can join us for pizza before the bus back to town.

Bring at least 64oz of fluids and electrolytes.
