Group: GMC Manchester
When: Saturday, July 8, 8 am to 5 pm
Where: Manchester, VT
Details: On Saturday July 8 meet at 8 am in Manchester, Vt or 9 am at the trailhead, spot cars, and hike via map and compass through the trail less Aiken Wilderness. Bring extra layer, raincoat, lunch, snacks and lot of of fluids. This is a difficult hike related to both distance and lack of trail. Ticks should not be any more of a problem than for most of VT – be tick safe – wear long pants tucked into your socks and long sleeves – pretreat your clothes with a permethrin treatment and use a repellent with either deet or picaridin on any uncovered skin, do a good tick check when you get home.
