We met at the Colchester Park & Ride to carpool for the short drive up to the Eagle Mountain trailhead. It was a gorgeous sunny day with the leaves in full color. We began with a short hike to Hoyt Lookout which afforded a great view across the Lake Champlain Islands. We then climbed to the summit.

The land around Eagle Mountain was given to the town of Milton by the Champlain Land Trust and the town maintains a network of trails in the area. We spent a pleasant hour trying to explore all the trails. With a small, congenial group, we had a very pleasant morning.

Participants: Karen Baron, Ginger Cooper, Greg Bostock, Dana Baron (leader)
