The Hike: We will be hiking the White, Pink, and Carriage Trails. This hike starts off with a gentle climb on the white trail. Then we turn on to the pink trail and follow this to the summit of Lookout Mountain. Enjoy the view if its a clear day, then follow the white trail until it meets up with the Carriage trail which is flat and wide and slops down hill back to the Case Pond lot and end of hike.

This is a nice hike and some new terrain we do not hike a lot!
