Giant boulders draped in moss. Massive rock outcroppings glistening with mountain runoff water. The soothing sound of a stream flowing over rock. Tree roots forming snakelike patterns. A heart-stopping lookout over the mountains, inspiring one to claim dominion over humanity. While these could be movie scenes, they are all in our backyard.
Join us as we foray through high-elevation hardwoods and spruce-fir-birch forests to the alpine terrain of the Green Mountain National Forest, with its surreal landscape of gnarled tree roots and lichen-covered rocks. We'll hike up the Sherburne Pass Trail off Route 4 in Killington up to Deer Leap Overlook. There, we'll practice yoga while gazing at an unforgettable view of the Coolidge Range, with Pico Peak front and center. Along the way, we'll play with yoga on the boulders and use rock walls to support us with various poses.
This challenging hike goes through a 600' elevation change in 40-minutes hike time. But if all those tourists from Mass can do it, so can you! Preregistration is required to save your space; please email using this link. $25 event fee payable at the hike.
