This is a FAMILY and DOG friendly hike (experienced and well behaved fur babies only) so bring the kids or some loved ones!
PS- Let's end the hike with some snacks and hot beverages in the parking lot! I will bring my camp stove to heat up some water =)
PPS- I will gladly offer a carpool from UVM! I can bring up to 5 people in addition to myself. Please let me know if you would like to carpool!
