The almost-national holiday of March 17th falls on a Monday this year, making it possible to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day for an extended weekend.

Read more about some great hiking options around Maine that are not too far from an Irish pub in my latest hiking column in the Outdoors section of the Maine Sunday Telegram. And remember: Please hike and drink responsibly!
