Bring drinking water and a lunch. Wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared for weather changes. Distances are round trip and are approximate, as are elevation gains. Hike leader has discretion to refuse anyone who is not adequately prepared. Proof of vaccination may be required. Call the hike leader for meeting place and time, and if you reserve a space and are unable to go, please let the leader know ASAP so that someone else can take your place. If you are sick or have any symptoms, please stay home and join us next time.

MUD SEASON MAPLE MEANDER, East Poultney
March 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Please join us for a walk near a local sugarhouse that will include part dirt road with an historic cemetery and old school-house, hemlocks, hardwoods, & cows, and part off-road hiking or snowshoeing (if Mother Nature cooperates). Spikes & hiking sticks may be useful if the back roads are still icy, 2 – 4 miles. We will be closest to Green’s Sugar House (located on Finel Hollow Rd.), where they traditionally have sugar-on-snow, maple cotton candy, dressings, spices, and more.
Mahar’s is not far away with maple cream, maple cream covered pecans, walnuts, and peanuts, and Marshalls & Verlaskas are also nearby so you can buy a pint or two at each place and compare! See how the liquid gold is made! Vaccination ncluding boosters recommended, and required for carpooling as of publication date, check with leader for updated covid protocol.
