Steve's SRKG Interview with Peter St James & Jeanne Lester, WNTK 99.7 FM

On Christmas Eve, I received a telephone call from Peter St James of WMTK 99.7 FM radio. Peter and his co-host, Jeanne Lester, invited me to be a guest on their radio show on Boxing Day, to discuss my latest book, Outdoor Play, Hiking New Hampshire’s Sunapee-Ragged, Kearsarge Greenway Trail: 75 Miles on a Fourteen Trail Loop.

The uniqueness of Hiking New Hampshire’s Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Trail is for each of the fourteen trails, I share a video of my experience on the SRKG. The videos make the hike “come alive." Each trail story is a short read with tips, details on preparation, pictures, maps, and references.

I follow the fourteen SRKG trail discussions with a Chapter on Warning Signs, Survival, Rescue, and First Aid. That section prepares the hiker for what it takes to have a safe and fun outdoor adventure. I shared preparations and the responsibility of hiking in the mountains of New Hampshire.

The Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Green Coalition has graciously given me full permission to use pictures, text, and maps from their SRK Greenway Trail Guide 3rd Edition. Indeed, I carried the Guide with me on all fourteen trails and regularly referenced it.  While my book and videos give you a “what it feels like” to hike the SRKG, the Guide is a continual reference with maps and content for locating a trailhead, when to turn, and where you exit the Trail. 

 History of SRKG

Conceived in the mid 1980′s by a  small group of creative and imaginative individuals associated with the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust, The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, Lake Sunapee Protective Association and several local conservationists, the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Coalition (SRKG or Greenway) has evolved into a dynamic non-profit corporation led by a board of directors, three ex-officio directors from the organizations mentioned, and ten towns that include SRKG trails: Andover, Danbury, Goshen, Newbury, New London, Springfield, Sunapee, Sutton, Warner, and Wilmot.

The mission of “Outdoor Play Hiking New Hampshire’s Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Trail” is to inspire and encourage families and individuals to make the outdoors a key component of their daily lives.
