Summer hikes end. Winter hikes coming up.

Posted on Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 by »

Our last hike of the summer season (OK, it’s really fall) is Saturday, October 16. And, it’s full. But, winter is on the way, in case you didn’t notice the frost on the grass this morning. So, get your thinking caps out, find the snow shoes, open your calendar to 2011 (or late 2010) and think about where you would like to go in the Scotchmans this winter. Winter hike forms will be available for filling out soon.

Thanks for all the great hikes this summer, hike leaders! We’ll have some more fun this winter.
