We hike at a pace 50% slower than the AMC Trailguide book time.Hike ratings: easy, moderate, strenuous,very strenuous.We start as a group,we hike as a group and we finish as a group.A HIKE WHICH IS MODERATE IN THE SUMMER IS STRENUOUS IN THE WINTER.NO COTTON CLOTHING IN THE WINTER. There are three other hiking Meetup groups if you want a faster pace or more challenging hikes (The New England Hiking Meetup, 4 Seasons Hiking Group, New England Over 40 Hiking Group).

    The predicted snow scared me off by the weather forecast - a mistake that I didn't go as it turned out
