Join us for our traditional spring hike on Mount Cardigan Cardigan. This is one of our favorite hikes for the variety of ecosystems and for the expansive views. From the summit and its fire tower we will have a panoramic view of the surrounding rural landscape, with the White Mountains rising to the north, Vermont's Green Mountains to the west, Ragged Mtn., and Mt. Kearsarge to the south. We will do a loop with several stops, including stops on Firescrew and South Peak, and have lunch on the summit. Approximately 5.6 to 6.3 miles.


will be posted later
