*** If getting a ride, don't forget to help the driver with gas and tolls: $10 is customary***
Basics: This will be an Intermediate hike of 10-12 miles. There will be no scrambling but several uphills; as a result the pace will be quick (about 2 mi/hour), a bit faster than my usual hikes.
We will gather in the Lake Sebago Boat Launch parking area (about 4 miles on 7 Lakes Drive after turnoff from rte 17).
Note that due to the season, there are tons of leaves on the ground and the terrain could have some icy spots. If you have hiking poles, please bring them along.
• Hike Length: 10-12 miles, 3,000+ elevation, looping trails
• Difficulty: Intermediate
• Pace: 2 mph
Meeting: 9AM on Saturday, Dec 7th at Lake Sebago Boat Launch. Note the parking lot has poor cell phone reception so please be on time.
Getting a Spot: Please write in your RSVP if you are driving and can offer rides. And update your RSVP if you can't make it.
Transportation: Car Only
From New York State (north) –-> from Rte.17, take right onto 7 Lakes Drive. After 4 miles you'll see a small hanging sign on the left for Sebago Boat Launch: [masked],[masked]
