*** If getting a ride, don't forget to help the driver with gas and tolls: $10 is customary***
Basics: This will be a Fit Beginners / 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).
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, 6-7 hours, looping trails

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.
