LGBTQA+ hikers are hitting the real hiking trails this month. We'll follow the Hedgehog Brook Trail through at lovely valley and up to the Long Trail where we'll head north to climb some summit ledges to reach Burnt Rock Mountain. We'll be rewarded by spectacular views and fascinating rock formations. At 5.2 miles round trip and about 2,100’ elevation gain, expect to spend close to three hours on the trail and to feel it afterward.
Becky Swem of the UVM Prism Center and Gwendolyn Causer of Audubon Vermont will co-lead the hike to provide birding, botany, and tracking tidbits.
All ages, allies, and families welcome! Youth under 18 years should be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
We will meet up in the parking lot at Shaws/Starbucks at 9:30 am to arrange carpools. (570 Shelburne Rd in S. Burlington. We'll gather in front of the Starbucks.) Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and bring snacks and water! Dogs are welcome as long as they are leashed.
