Join me if you can tomorrow for an Appalachian Mountain Club Connecticut Chapter hike in Bennett’s Pond State Park and Pine Mountain open space. Details from the AMC announcement below.
B2B means 5-8 miles, fast pace, strenuous terrain, although we will be very close to C3C (<5 miles, moderate pace, average terrain). There is no need to be an AMC member.
Wed., Apr. 15. Bennett’s Pond and Pine Mountain, Ridgefield (B2B), Connecticut, West of River, CT. Make the most of forecast sunny skies with an evening hike to a scenic overlook (Ives Site). We will hike through Bennett’s Pond State Park into Pine Mountain open space, covering approximately 5.0 miles of mostly gentle grades in about 2.5 hrs (including break at overlook). There is one steep ascent, and one steep descent. Short muddy sections possible. Meet Bennett’s Pond SP parking on Bennetts Farm Road, Ridgefield, 4:30 p.m. for 4:45 sharp departure (sunset is 7:33 p.m.) Co-Lead welcome. Call Rob if interested to car-pool from Rte 7 commuter parking lot near Orem’s Diner, Wilton. Heavy rain cancels. L Rob McWilliams (203-434-0297, firstname.lastname@example.org)
