Please join us on the first Sunday of 2019, Jan 6, for a hike at Robs Trail, a trail built in 2016 by the Nature Conservancy. The trail has beautiful views, two lovely bridges over bubbling streams and meanders on moss covered trails along stream gorges.  Stop and look at the descriptive map that shows all the cottages once located on this pristine lake.

We will meet at the entrance to the Robs Trail on Route 15A.  The trailhead has a large sign at the parking lot that is 3.9 miles from Rix Hill rd at the North End of Hemlock lake. The Tourists and Naturalists can carpool to the boat launch parking lot on the North East end of Hemlock lake.  They can walk south along the trail that goes along the shore of the lake. Climbers will hike down Robs trail from 15A to the shore of Hemlock lake and back.  This will include more climbing than the Tourist route.

Following the hike, please join us for a pot-luck social at Mary’s. Directions available at the hike. Bring a dish to pass and your own beverage.

For a more detailed description of Rob’s trail, check out their website.
