Outings for February 2019

2/2 (Sat) Camels Hump Loop
We’ll take Forest City Trail to Montclair Glen Lodge, then climb the Long Trail to the Camel’s Hump summit and return along the Burrows Trail. Difficult snowshoe. Moderate pace. 6 miles. 2400′ elevation gain. David Hathaway, david.hathaway.78@gmail.com or 899-9982.

2/9 (Sat) Camels Hump via Monroe Trail
This outing is a great snowshoe or micro-spikes workout, all the more so if its blowing fifty knots at the summit! The Monroe Trail starts at the end of North Duxbury’s Crouching Lion parking lot, up Camel’s Hump Road which is off of River Road, itself following the Winooski River just to its south. Allow about four hours round trip, maybe a little more, with a few steep parts. Possible pit stop at the Reservoir tavern in Waterbury afterward? To be decided. Difficult snowshoe. 6 miles. 2600′ elevation gain. Group limit 6. Ted Albers, ted@ted-albers.net.

2/10 (Sun) Burnt Rock
We’ll head up Hedgehog Brook Trail to the Long Trail, and continue up the steep final stretch to the summit of Burnt Rock Mtn. Snowshoes and spikes required. Difficult snowshoe. Moderate pace. 5.2 miles. 2010′ elevation gain. Jill George, jillghiker@gmail.com.

2/16 (Sat) White Mtn. Surprise
Count on a 14-15 hour day from A to B with eats and libations planned post-hike with a fireplace to boot! Experienced fast-paced hikers only, please. I’ll think up a fun mountain as date draws near or feel free to share with me what you may want to summit! Difficult snowshoe. Strong pace. 10-12 miles. Robynn Albert, robynnalbert@hotmail.com.

2/17 (Sun) Lincoln Gap to Cooley Glen

Meet at 8:30AM in the parking lot up by the Ethan Allen Homestead Museum.
