Around 100 people walked the new North Adams Walking Loop on Friday evening.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Around 100 people took a hike Friday evening in downtown North Adams.

The hike was actually a walk on the brand-new North Adams Walking Loop. The loop actually has two parts: The MCLA loop is 1.9 miles and the MoCA/Main Street loop is 1.6 miles.

On Friday evening, the rain held off for the group to walk the MCLA route, led by Mass in Motion Coordinator Amanda Chilson and North Adams Mayor Richard Alcombright. Participants were given maps and scavenger hunts to complete along the way, featuring items like picnic benches and a wind turbine.

And a chalkboard — which was the highlight of the walk for the younger walkers, who flocked to the chalkboard in the outdoor classroom at the new Feigenbaum Center for Science and Innovation at MCLA (where the wind turbine was, too) to sign their names and draw pictures. Also in the outdoor classroom, MCLA students handed out water to the walkers.

Many of those walkers were also participants in the inaugural Mayor's Fitness Challenge, and they scored many bonus points for taking the walk.
