Join me for an out-and-back hike on the roller coaster section of the Appalachian Trail. We'll start at Bears Den, carefully wind our way across Route 7, and to the overlook at Raven's Rock/Crescent Rock. Once back at Bears Den, we can visit another overlook near the trail center.
There will be several strenuous ascents (and descents) on this out and back hike; we will be going at a slow-moderate pace. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear, as the hike is very rocky.
WHERE? Bears Den Trail Center parking lot (directions here). $3 per car - carpooling is encouraged!
WHEN? Saturday, October 13, 10:30a.m.
HOW LONG? Hike is approximately 6 1/2 miles, should take around 4 1/2 hours.
WHAT TO BRING? Sturdy hiking shoes. Hat and sun screen if it's sunny. Hiking poles may help with the rocky descents.
WATER: Bring lots!
FOOD: Bring snacks/lunch; we'll take a break mid-way.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Check the meet up site before leaving for the hike.
E-mail Phyllis with any Qs. I will email my contact information out to those who have signed up.
