Green Mountain Club Sport Events
GMC Hike Manchester
The Manchester section of the Green Mountain Club will be hiking in the trailless Aiken Wilderness on Saturday, July 23. The group will meet at Shaw’s Supermarket in Manchester Center at 7 a.m., or at the snowmobile parking lot across from Woodford State Park in Woodford at 8 am. Bring extra clothes, raincoat, lots of food and fluids, headnet and bug stuff. Poles are helpful especially, as we will be bushwacking the entire way. The total distance is between 10 and 12 miles. It’s a moderate hike, but the bushwacking will make it more challenging. The leader is very comfortable with map and compass and has been here multiple times. RSVP to Dave Ratti at 802-366-0698 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
GMC Hike Killington
The Killington section of the Green Mountain Club will be exploring The Nature Conservancy’s newest preserve at Raven Ridge in Monkton on Saturday, July 23. The group will meet at 9 a.m. for this moderate, short hike with some steep places. Raven Ridge is home to bobcats, ravens, beavers and the endangered Indiana bat, and the site of vernal pools, a spectacular geological formation and views of the Adirondacks and the Champlain Valley. Call Sue Thomas at 802-773-2185 for details.
