Mystery Token Hike

The first Saturday of the month, at 9:30 a.m., join Townsend Bertram & Company, at 200 N. Greensboro Street, Carrboro, for a free Mystery Token Hike.
The hike will start on the front steps of Townsend Bertram & Company, in front of the historic Carr Mill Mall, and will go on a few side streets and a walking path through downtown Carrboro, and then onto the dirt trails along Bolin Creek.
The hikes will be 3-5 miles at a moderately fast pace and will return in time for an optional outdoor brunch at Weaver Street Market for a show-and-tell.
You’re invited to bring and talk about something that is associated with travel or outdoor adventure, is special to you, and fits in your pocket. It can be an object, a poem, song, etc. In the spirit of fun and suspense, do not share or reveal before brunch.
