Burlington/Central Vermont Hikers and (optional) Beer Lovers - Is a fun group of people, who enjoy being out and about in Vermont's serenity.
The group enjoys hikes throughout Vermont, while having fun interactive conversations to unwind and relax, followed up a pit-stop at a local brewery/food joint.
We are very active Meetup Group throughout the Spring/Summer/Fall, and some Winter Weekends. If you missed a recent hike the group hosted, or would like to suggest a hike on your list, please contact the organizers; We'd happy to consider.
Hiking is great way to explore Vermont's beautiful mountains, so please join us on our next hike!
