Redlining, in the hiking world, means to walk every mile of every trail in a given area. This past summer, students in the new Redlining Camp led by Erin Kennedy, hiked all the Beaver Brook trails in one week and earned the new Beaver Brook Redlining Patch. Now hikers of all ages can participate in this program .
