Apple Pie Hill Fire Tower Hike

Everyone keeps asking for this hike so we are going to do it again.

Join the L.L.Bean Marlton Outing club for a 8.5 mile hike on the Batona Trail to the Apple Pie Hill fire tower. You can climb the 60 foot fire tower and on a clear day you might be able to see AC and the Pilly skyline. We are hoping there will be snow on the ground, if there is bring your snowshoes. Age requirement of 8.
*Registration is Required*

    Great leadership and company. It was strange to be in the woods for that long and not hear birds. I only heard a bird or two, But, of course, I didn't see a single insect, so the birds may be waiting for their dinner to hatch. We did some informal geocacheing and climbed the fire tower. Thanks to L.L.Bean for sponsoring this great walk.

    We had a wonderful day with beautiful cool weather, and our participants seemed to hit it off really well with each other. We had a great time together today. Glad we got to meet Cathy and Bob today too, although we weren't able to hike together. We will look for you again. Thank you to everyone who came out. We hope to see you again soon and for those who were unable to join us, we will look for you another time!

    Would I be able to bring 3 year old twins in a stroller on this hike?

    I have been walking daily about 2 miles each day for the last two months. Before that I was kind of stagnant. Will this hike prove too tough for me? I am over 50

    Would like to bring my son along, too, if that's OK. space seems to be limited.

    Nancy, that is something we have discussed, so keep an eye out for it. I think they would have fun with it too. We just have to be careful where we do it depending on the ages of children. So there may be age restrictions, but I've done similar things with my grandsons as early as three years. I know we are always trying to come up with new and interesting things to do. Adam as our Manager and ultimately the company will of course have the final say. We'll see. . . Ron

    Do you guys ever do any hikes on Saturday's ? I

    February 23, 2013

    • Ron P.

      Usually not Stacey, because we are also staff in the store and needed more often on Saturdays than Sundays. Also, most people are available on Sundays rather than Saturdays. I'm sure Adam, our Outdoor Discovery School Manager has seen your inquiry and will consider it though. Thanks for your query and we hope you can make it out to one of our events. Ron

    I haven't hiked for a while but enjoyed it before. What would you suggest for a beginner hike?

    February 24, 2013

    • Ron P.

      Hi Peggy. If you are not very active with walking or hiking now, you should start out with easy, short hikes and work back up to longer ones. Even start walking around your neighborhood if you have availability nearby. Make sure you have good supportive shoes and/or boots, ideally waterproof, as the Spring time brings rain and mud. Our hikes in Franklin Parker preserve are fairly easy and not too long. We hope to add some more to the list and we will advise whether they are easy or not. Maybe consider coming to our Geocaching clinic and then the geocaching hike at Blueberry Hill, which is fairly easy and will be slower too as we do some geocaching. Hope to see you out for one of them. Ron
