A group of seven of us headed up the Brownsville Trail on one of the many very hot days this month. We had a great view at the old quarry site and then again from the top of the quarry. Continuing up it began to rain when we were about 2/3 of the way up. The majority of the group decided that we should turn around as the rocks were quite slippery, so we retreated back to the cars. The rain having stopped and the heat returning we ended our hike with a stop for soft serve ice cream, which we needed to eat quickly before it melted.
We have scheduled a repeat hike on Ascutney Mtn for September 22, going up the Windsor Trail and down the Brownsville Trail.
Details to follow in our calendar.
