Hiking


Seasonal Hiking

The Mountain Laurel Hike Committee organizes Sunday hikes in the spring, from April through June, and in the fall from September through December. If there’s snow in December, our hikes become snowshoe outings. Sunday hikes begin at 12:30 pm from April through October and last for 3 to 4 hours. In late fall we start at 11:30. At the conclusion of each hike we bring food and picnic at the trailhead, party at a hiker’s home or gather at a local pizza place.
