Saturday, September 15, 8:30 a.m meet up at the Appalachian Trail Kiosk at Greylock Elementary School in the West End of North Adams.
The hike starts on the famed Appalachian Trail heading northbound crossing the Hoosic River Footbridge (the lowest point on the AT in Massachusetts) and then continues west to a new trail system that meanders along the Hoosic River through the Tourist campus. The trail once again crosses the Hoosic via a suspension bridge as one scouts for native brown trout and bald eagles that call the river corridor home. Hike will be led by 3 local guides.
+/- 2.0 miles round trip, entry level ability, no hiking experience necessary, terrain is mostly flat and all ages are welcome. The hike is an out and back with the option of turning around at any point.
- Wear appropriate shoes for hiking/walking. Bring food and water for a short outing if one desires. Dogs are welcome, but must have leash and poo bags.
- Allow 1.0 hour for this hike and 2.0 hours maximum for a more casual pace with plenty of time to kick back and take in the views of the river valley.
- Hike is rain or shine.
