Backpacking Mt. Greylock

Scouts and Parents,

Our November trip is a backpacking trek in western Massachusetts to the shoulder of Mt. Greylock on November 15-16, 2014.

The temperatures are dropping, so expect the possibility of a chilly night, but there are likely still some warm days ahead before we start seeing significant snow fly. As always this time of year, pay attention to the weather forecast because we won’t know what to expect until we get closer to the date of the outing!

The trip is a 1-night trek, leaving on Saturday morning, with an expected departure of 6:30 AM from St. Mark’s. With Daylight Savings Time behind us, we will need to be on the trail as early as possible to allow time to get in to the campsite and still have time for a summit hike.

We will hike back to the cars on Sunday morning and expect to be back in Westford around 3:00 pm on Sunday.

Cost for this trip is $35/person.

We need to get a final headcount at tonight’s meeting.  Payment and permission slips are due at next week’s meeting (Nov 12).

Permission slips can be found online.  Please download the Outing Permission Form from the ‘Forms’ section of our website.
