The group will car pool to Brookline to park cars at the far end of the hike and then drive up Putney Mountain Road to the beginning of the hike.

The hikers will hike the ridge to the summit of Putney Mountain with fine views and then continue below the ridge on the West Cliff trail to the five corners.
