    Event Description:
    Join experienced hikers, Paul Handlen and Pete Dubay, for a guided hike up the 4th highest peak in Maine.  This all-day, 7.6 mile round-trip hike is rugged with over 2000 feet of elevation gain and loss. This hike is best for experienced hikers who should bring the following: adequate water, lunch, and fleece for warmth.  Due to concerns about returning before dusk, the group will turn around no later than 1:00PM even if the peak is not reached.  Meet at the trailhead (11.7 miles from intersection of Routes 2 and 26) no later than 7:45AM.
    Location:
    Meet at the parking lot by the AT at Grafton Notch no later than 7:45 AM. From the intersection of US-2 and ME-26 in Newry, follow ME-26 approximately 12 miles north to where the Appalachian Trail crosses the road.  The trailhead and parking area are on the left.
