It was a beautiful June morning. 7 hikers and 1 dog showed up and enjoyed an easy 5-1/2 mile hike under the shade of the forest canopy. Included near the end was a stimulating hike up and over one of the Barndoor Hills. After the hike, all participants met at the Cambridge Brew House for a late lunch and some camaraderie. Thanks to all who participated.
