New Year's Day hike planned
BONDVILLE >> On New Year's Day join members of the Green Mountain Club Manchester Section on a hike to welcome the new year.
Meet at the Bondville Post Office at 10 a.m. to car pool as there is very limited parking at the trailhead. Car pool to the beginning of the hike. Snowshoe in from North Brookwood via a Catamount Trail side trail to VAST 7, via VAST 7 to the Long Trail and then via the Long Trail to Stratton Pond. Lunch at Stratton Pond. Snowshoe back via the Catamount Trail and the Catamount Trail side trail.
Bring lunch and snacks and liquids, extra clothes, snowshoes. Poles are useful. The route covers five miles of trail and about 500 feet of elevation change for a moderately easy hike and a great way to start the New Year.
If there is not enough snow to warrant snowshoes, bring some kind of traction device, but lots of snow prayers are welcome.
RSVP to Marge Fish at (c)802-384-3654 or (h)802-824-3662 or <firstname.lastname@example.org>
