Hikes and Ice Cream - Stowe Car Camp Weekend

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Fri September 20, 2019 - Sun September 22, 2019

We're headed up to the Green Mountains! Join us Friday - Sunday, September 20-22 , for a fun car camp weekend and an opportunity to enjoy the best hikes in Vermont. On Friday night, we have reserved a campsite at Little River State Park in Woodbury, VT. Although not required, we recommend joining us Friday night since the travel time from Boston is approx. 3 hrs 45 min. On Saturday, we will hike Vermont's highest peak, Mt. Mansfield (4,393 ft), on a 6.3-mile loop and an elevation gain of about 2,800 ft. On Sunday, we'll hike Camel's Hump (4,083 feet) - Vermont's highest never-developed peak, for a shorter hike of 4.2-miles and an elevation gain of about 2,300 ft . Both summits offer stunning views, which on clear days include Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and distant views of the White Mountains. With the beautiful Vermont foliage starting to turn, we'll enjoy two fantastic hikes with full restroom facilities at the campsite. It's hard to imagine what could possibly make this weekend better, but how about a visit to the Ben & Jerry's Factory Store and Headquarters, only 15 minutes away from our campsite! Please note that this trip will be cancelled in the event of bad of weather.

T Time Downhill from Wachusett

Bicycling Date: Sat September 21, 2019

Bicycle tour at leisurely pace to enjoy colorful views from top of Wachusett Mountain & country roads to Concord. Warm up on the gentle climb from Wachusett commuter rail station for the first 10km, before the steep climb starts to Wachusett observation tower, passing under the ski chair lifts. Lunch stop is in Princeton: bread, soup, salad, & sandwiches at Mountainside Market.

It is a long rolling descent afterwards for about 30km until we climb to Harvard for warm coffee at the general store.

After a few climbs to Littletown, we continue on rolling hills all the way back to Concord for ice cream at Bedford Farms or dinner.

Bring GPS device, phone with navigation apps, or cue sheets for the routes you plan to ride. We will not provide them. This will be self-guided tour, even though we will try to stay together as a group.

Adjust your start & finish location as you see fit based on closest train station to you. Option for shorter ride stop at Littleton commuter rail station for train at 16:16.

T Time rides are those that combine train & ferry public transport service around Boston. T could mean train, tour, or a cup of tea. The idea is to reach routes far from city center or take one-way routes. These rides are often leisurely tours for a full day that allows several stops to take pictures, rest on the town green, dip in the water, & sample bakeries.
