Meet at the Thorndyke Brook trailhead on Hope Rd in West Rockport. We will follow the trail past a number of viewpoints to show the intersection with the Ragged Mountain trail. This trail is part of the Round the Mountain Trail that CMLT is developing - it’s a great chance to check it out!
Wear good solid walking/hiking footwear - snowshoes/ ice grippers if it’s snowy/icy - and bring layers as we are likely to warm up. This hike is not incredibly steep but it does rise and drop a few times so can be a bit challenging in some places if you aren’t wearing the appropriate gear.
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 en-route. This is an undulating hike, and we will allow for different paces to hike out and back, with a short gathering at the viewpoints. Please come prepared!
