We met at the Richmond Park & Ride around 8 AM, took a car up to the Duxbury trailhead, and headed down to the Bamforth Ridge trailhead by the Winooski River to start hiking around 8:50. We reached the hut clearing around 1, and as we approached the summit, we heard someone behind us calling out our names. It was Amanda Debruyn, with whom we’d both hiked the Worcester Ridge the week before, with a friend. They’d come up Burrows, and after we hung out for a while having lunch at the summit, they opted to go south down the LT with us.

We reached the Dean Trail junction around 2:45, where Amanda and her friend continued to head down Forest City, and we returned on the Dean and Monroe trails, reaching the car around 4.

Participants: David Hathaway, Wes Volk (leader).
