 Inspite of cooler temps and cloudier skies than forecast, 12 eager GO members enjoyed the 5 miles of hiking trails on this early spring hike in Manchester CT. From old carriage roads to even older rock faces and a beautiful view of the CT river valley, everyone seemed to have a good time. Thanks to this good group for a nice outing.
