Family Self-Guided Story Walk at The Boulders, Dalton

Different kinds of hurt: Isaac’s Story will be on display for a self-guided adventure from Saturday, October 1 – Sunday, October 30 (dawn to dusk) on the 0.5-mile Healthy Heart Loop at The Boulders reserve in Dalton.     

Different Kinds of Hurt: Isaac’s Story was developed by youth and mental health experts. It is a wonderful jumping-off point for conversations about the power of friendship, the pain of stigma, and the importance of paying attention to and encouraging all youth who are wounded somehow to find their strength, rely on friends, family and helpers, hang on to their dreams, and to live a life with joy and meaning.  

Spending time outside benefits your physical and emotional well-being. Enjoy the StoryWalk while also noticing what’s going on around youwhat do you see, hear and feel? 

This book is for elementary and middle school-aged children. 


To the trailhead parking area on Gulf Road, Dalton: take routes 8/9 east from the center of Pittsfield.  Take a left onto Park Avenue in Dalton, past Craneville School.  Take a left onto Gulf Road. Park at the pull-off on the left, opposite the parking for the Appalachian Trail. We do not recommend taking Gulf Road from Lanesboro; this is a very rough, seasonal dirt road.
