Trip Guiding / Event Fee: No, I will not be asking participants for money

Difficulty Level: Moderate


Please join me for this 9-mile RT, 1200'+ elevation gain hike in the far northwest of CT.  Hopefully the mountain laurel will be in full bloom and, if so, should be spectacular.  Stunning views from both Lion's Head and the summit of Bear Mtn (highest peak in CT at 2316').  Per usual, please wear sturdy hiking shoes/boots, wear clothing layers apropriate to the forecast and bring whatever snacks/lunch/water/beverages will sustain you for the hike.  Raindate Sunday 20 June.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

We'll be parking in the designated Hikers' Parking lot near the end of Bunker Hill Road, Salisbury CT off of Route 44.  In the center of Salisbury, turn north onto Factory/Washinee Road (next to Town Hall) which become sFactory Road when it reaches Cobble Road - stay straight ahead.  Keep going straight onto Bunker Hill Rd (do NOT take Mt Riga Rd).  When you reach the high plateau on Bunker Hill Rd the parking lot will come up shortly on your right.  Turn in and park.
