The Hawthorne Hike is Here!
We all thought that the only elephants in Belfast were located at the Colonial Theatre, but we were wrong! In late 2020, Scott Smith of the Belfast Area Chamber of Commerce discovered something very unique in the streets of our downtown - an elephant hiding in plain sight!
He walked the streets thoroughly to find the best path and along with Hartdale Maps, has created a new walking trail within our downtown! With respect to the large beloved elephant that already sits atop our city, the trail has been named the 'Hawthorne Hike.'
This new trail twists and turns through our downtown, our waterfront, our historic district, and brings a new and exciting activity for locals, visitors, and families to enjoy for years to come. Shops, architecture, history, homes and gardens, ocean and wildlife can all be seen! Full hike and Kids hike available.
