GMC Manchester Hikes
The Manchester section of the Green Mountain Club will be hiking the East Dorset Trail on Saturday, May 28. This trail is being rebuilt after many years and much remodeling by Hurricane Irene; there will be some areas with scrambling. The group will meet at the Peru Park and Ride at 8 a.m. The hike is between five and seven miles long, with either a couple thousand feet of elevation gain or or loss depending on direction. Poles are really helpful for this moderate hike. RSVP to Bob Whitney at 802-375-4125 or email@example.com.
On Sunday, May 29, there will be a hike to Lye Brook Falls. Meet at 1 p.m. at the Lye Brook Falls Trail parking lot in Manchester to follow the trail up to the turn off for the falls, where the group will bushwack through the woods to the site of a large old ruin and explore. Poles are helpful on this moderate hike. RSVP to Keld Alstrup at 802-362-1422 or firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, whenever hiking, bring an extra layer, some snacks and fluids and wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots.
