It looks to be an ideal early fall day for a hike and picnic!
(This beautiful photo taken by Meetup member Leah Melquist on 9/29/13 - top of Mount A on clear crisp autumn day!).
With the cooler weather days upon us soon, time to get back outside again! Join us for a fun hike and picnic today. It is very close to, or at, peak foliage.
We will meet at the edge of the base parking lot (not at the top - GPS devices have been known to be in error by steering people to the top).
Chase's Pond Road becomes Mountain Road; there are no turns. Parking lot is on the right ~ 6 1/2 miles from the highway ramps.
I'm estimating that we'll walk about 6 miles give or take; combined with the picnic, allow about 3 1/2 hours or so.
Hiking or walking shoes with non-slip soles are recommended. Pack along a couple of sandwiches, beverages, etc.
As we will be having our picnic on the trail, pack along a towel or small blanket if you wish to do so (and camera if you're into photography and nature).

Dogs are great, but York has strict leash and 'pooper-scooper' ordinances. They must be kept on leashes at all times, and pet waste must be scooped and carried off premises. The way it goes.....
As with all Meetups, members assume all associated risks.
Look forward to seeing you there!
