This is something that is new to me. I've done the 1st section of the CT portion of the AT but never the second. Kent CT to Bulls Bridge n More
If we stick with the traditional outline of section 2, we are looking at a 7.4 hike with a number of ups and downs. I may extend this to include the Bulls Bridge/Ten Mile River portion which would put this in the 9 to 9.5 range but it would also provide an opportunity to cool your feet (and more) in the river.
Could also opt to go the other way and visit the St. John Ledges and then circle back.
Note: Due to limited parking this hike will involve a car shuttle. We will likely meet at the Bulls Bridge lot and shuttle to Kent CT to start the hike.
We can also look into carpool options from Westchester.
Gear - Sunscreen, Water -at least 64 oz, lunch/snacks, bug spray, hat, light towel, water shoes, change of shirt, and if brave enough a bathing suit. If we opt to visit the Ten Mile River area, there is an outdoor (yet private) privy where you can do a quick change.
For this one, you either must be someone that I know or someone currently active with an area hiking group. The goal is to try and keep a 2mph pace but at the same time stop and take in the scenery.
Suggested Donation - $1.00
