Let's get out for a brisk tromp at Sanders Hill in the Kennebec Highlands area in Belgrade. Trail is just under 3 miles. Conditions are unknown at this time. Microspikes are likely a good idea and showshoes may be needed.
Donation of $1.00 per person is suggested for this meetup in order to cover the $12-15 per month fee of having Central Maine Hikers hosted on Meetup.com
Sunday, February 23rd at 10:30 A.M.
For those NOT carpooling from Augusta, meet slightly before 10:30 at the trailhead. The trailhead is located in Belgrade on the west side of Watson Pond Rd 1.3 miles south of Watson Pond Rd's junction with Route 27.
Some members would like to carpool from Augusta. The carpool meeting point is Wal-Mart parking lot in Augusta at 201 Civic Center Dr at around 9:30A.M. This Wal-Mart has a Dunkin' Donuts in it. It is about a 30 minute drive to trailhead from this location, so it would be a good idea to try to get to carpool location around 9:30A.M. and leave for trailhead by 9:45 in order to get on the trail by 10:30. A descriptive picture is attached below, but if you can't view it, try to meet partway down the parking lot on the left as you are facing the front of Wal-Mart. This location is fairly close to Panera Bread. You can leave comments in this meetup to facilitate carpooling discussion.
