2017 Fall Hike

October 28th – 29th  with a rain date of November 4th to 5th

This overnight hike will have several options to be appropriate for beginner through more advanced hikers as well as hawk watch and saw-whet banding  opportunities.  You may backpack your gear in & out or drop it off at the campground.  There are options to hike a mile or two or eight plus miles.

We have extra camping and hiking gear so just let us know if you need any.

We will need help with shuttling drivers.  And a female leader for the rain date.  Nancy is hoping to attend a show in Boston in which Amy Donna is preforming on 11/4.
