After a last minute cancellation and a waiting 15 minutes for someone who didn’t show up, we ended up with a group of five experienced hikers. We did a lovely loop hike on the side of Mt. Mansfield from Stevensville Parking Lot — Frost Trail, Maple Ridge, Rock Garden, Butler Trail. The views were nice along Maple Ridge Trail and the scrambling through the Rock Garden was lots of fun. We enjoyed lunch at Butler Lodge and had a pleasant hike back down.

Participants – Rich Larsen, Jerry Lasky, Cilla Kimberly, Ed Blackwell.
