We will hike over the Seven Sisters of the Holyoke Range, from Mount Hitchcock to Mount Holyoke, along the New England National Scenic Trail. The hike is about five miles with 1,500 feet of elevation gain over rolling terrain with scenic clifftop views interspersed with forest and some steep ups and downs. We will hike at a moderate pace with short breaks. The hike involves a 15-minute shuttle, which we will do with masks on and car windows open.
To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out.
