Lace up your hiking boots and join Harris Center naturalist Nikko Gagnon to trek to the top of Skatutakee Mountain, and saunter over the saddle to Thumb. Along the way, we’ll enjoy two different vistas, discover a menagerie of carved wooden creatures, and explore the fascinating history of a remote SuperSanctuary pond. This moderately strenuous, 4.5-mile loop hike traverses some steep, rocky, and rooty sections of trail, with approximately 800 feet of elevation gain. The perfect Sunday morning outing for those with adventure in their heart and pep in their step! Bring water and lunch, and come prepared for sun and biting insects.

Meet at 9 a.m. at the Harris Center. Back by 1 p.m. Space is limited, and registration is required.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For more information about this particular outing, contact Nikko.
