Hike the Real Hogback

Date & Time: 
Jul 2 2017 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Lots of folks know and love the hike to the fire tower, but that's not Hogback Mountain. That's Mount Olga. On this 3-mile hike we'll follow the less-used hiking trails in the north half of the conservation area to go to the summit of the real Hogback Mountain, where we'll catch some modest glimpses of Mount Snow and other peaks in the distance. We'll pass some interesting rock formations along the way, and stop by a big vernal pool. There is a small amount of climb, no more than going to the fire tower, and none of it requires scrambling or tricky footing. Meet in the big parking lot on the north side of Route 9 just west of the gift shop. More info at hogbackvt.org, or email us at hmca@hogbackvt.org.
