Meet at the parking lot on Barnestown Rd, Hope (just past Gillette rd if heading up from Camden). We will walk from the parking lot, across the road, in the field and into the woods, up the mountain beyond the first lookout, and then return. This is a challenging hike and involves some solid up and down - it’s for the hikers out there! Definitely a wonderful challenge with a beautiful view payoff.
Wear good solid walking/hiking footwear - ice grippers or solid winter boots are recommended, as are poles if you have them. Layer up and bring hat, gloves and a buff/ scarf in case it’s windy at the top.
Doctors Kate Killoran and Katy Morrisson will provide a brief talk on a topical wellness topic, and we will walk together. Mish Sommers, Founder of Happier Outside, will facilitate a moment of reflection either at the top or in the lee of the boulders along the way :)!
