Mountains and Cheese: The Vermont Experience
with Jenny and Sophie
Disclaimer: We will be in New York. Come enjoy a lovely weekend of hiking and fine soft cheeses on Big Slide with Sophie and Jenny. We'll do some 'Dakpacking (a term we made up for backpacking in the Adirondacks), gourmet food munching, and hopefully glimpsing the first snows! Sophie will tell stories, Jenny will reveal dark family secrets. Saturday 3:45pm-Sunday 5:00pm. Sign up here.

Spooktacular Halloween Hike
with Andrew and Caroline
At 7:30 am on Halloween morning we will all get in our costumes and go hike the tallest peak in Vermont. We will have candy to give out to any travelers we happen upon on the trail. The trip will return at 5:00, in time for whatever Halloween evening festivities you have planned. It is about 7 miles round trip. Sign up here.

Snowbowl Sunrise with Emma and Ryan
Fall's the perfect time for a sunrise hike! We'll head out early from ADK at 545am on Friday morning to catch a 720am summit sunrise. The hike up the snowbowl is ~3miles round trip, and we should be back on campus in time for 900am classes -- but it might be tight! All experience levels welcome! Be sure to bring some water, warm layers, a headlamp (or flashlight), and shoes to hike in. Sign up here.
