We had a great hike here on Sunday, July 5.  The beginning of the trail is quite steep up stone steps. After the initial ascent, it’s pretty level and easy. Lots of mud from all the recent rain.

Total: 3.4 miles

Vertical rise: 1,265 feet

On the trail, we met up with several people: some families out for a nice hike; one guy who was out for a two-week backpacking trip; another guy with an “AT” cap who carried a massive pack; a couple of solo hikers. We also met Doug who was out with his two sons, Caleb and Micah. They’re from Tucson, AZ and their goal is to hike most of Vermont’s Long Trail. I hope they make it!
