Details

This beginner friendly hike will follow parts of the white blazed appalacian trail to Ten Mile Hill. As of yesterday (February 24th) the uphill trail was covered with mostly packed snow. Snowshoes are reccomended, but that may change as we approach the weekend. Micro-spikes or other traction may be sufficiaent.

The trip is a 2+ mile round-trip.
