HIKE TO WINDHAM HIGH PEAK
Enjoy spring and welcome migrants back to their breeding ground. Windham High Peak rises to 3524 feet. This hike on the Escarpment Trail will be about 6.5 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 1500 feet. The trail has steep climbs alternating with moderate sections. Depending on the group and how long we linger on the summit (there are several excellent viewpoints), allow 4 to 6 hours. Given the season, good bird activity is expected. We will observe and record breeding behaviors as we hike. Meet at the Kingston traffic circle at 7:00 AM to car pool for the 1-hour drive to the trailhead in Maplecrest. Limit of 12 participants. Heavy rain cancels. Contact Dave Hayes (firstname.lastname@example.org) for questions or to register.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
