Weather permitting; we'll join the Secular Hikers Meetup for the Catamount Trail with beautiful scenic falls. About 6 miles round trip, and an elevation gain of 1640 ft, this is considered an intermediate level hike. Dogs are welcome!

The hike will start in Green Mountain Falls and the group will carpool to the trailhead.

Meet at the parking lot northwest of the intersection of Highway 24 and 21st Street before 9:00 AM Sunday morning. From Highway 24 and 21st Street, go north on 21st Street, take the first left turn onto Naegele Rd and then the first right turn into the parking lot. We will be leaving the parking lot promptly at 9:00 AM.

Led by Diane, call or text for any questions. (719-[masked]).
