Can you find the hidden hearts at Penny Lake Preserve in Boothbay Harbor? Edgecomb Eddy School Kindergarten teacher Cindy Casey set up a fun scavenger hunt for her students that is open to everyone to try. Entitled “Love to Hike,” participants are challenged to find the 18 hidden rocks with red hearts painted on them scattered throughout the preserve. Find the "Love to Hike" scavenger hunt map in the Penny Lake Preserve kiosk or by visiting bbrlt.org
The map marks the trails, features, and the approximate location of the rocks, which makes for easy orienteering for families. Head out onto the trail and find the heart rocks anytime during daylight hours until June 5, remembering to leave them in place for the next person to find. A reminder that social distancing guidelines are in place for hiking, such as keeping 6 feet apart on the trail and returning at another time if the parking lot is full. Happy hunting!
