We met at the Cambridge park & ride at 10 AM, and everyone showed up before the appointed hour! Thanks to all participants (we often have no shows, especially among those who sign up on meetup). We had 9 sign up through meetup, and one who called me for a spot. We took three cars to the Codding Hollow trailhead.

The road is in much better shape than I’ve seen in past years. It was a pleasant day as we started up the trail around 10:30 AM. The group stayed together well, and those at the front waited for stragglers, and gave them time to rest before pushing on. Great group hiking etiquette!

We passed the overhanging rock faces before reaching the Laraway Lookout, where we met a couple Long Trail through hikers, one NOBO (northbound) and one SOBO (southbound), along with a few other people. We hung out for a bit, having lunch and enjoying the views, and then headed back down, reaching the cars around 2:30.

Participants: Sean Conners, Chelsea, Maria E, Renata Cupertino, Ana, Debora, Christian Mesh, Jordan Mitchell, Linda S., Andy S., David Hathaway (leader).
