Randonue de Solstice (Vermont, E-U)

Greetings naked hikers,


This year the summer solstice is at 11:31 pm EDT on Sunday, June 20, rather than on June 21 as it often is.  Sunday, June 20, is also Fathers’ Day, which may inhibit some participants.  So this year we are planning to hike on both Sunday June 20 and Monday June 21.  All are welcome for either or both days.


Because of the continuing risks associated with the pandemic, we will avoid carpooling this year, so we will do one day of out-and-backs and one day of a loop trail.


Note that Vermont has lifted restrictions on out-of-staters who are fully vaccinated more than two weeks before entering Vermont, but maintains travel restrictions on those who are not fully vaccinated.  If you have not been vaccinated, please wait for a future solstice hike, after the pandemic is fully controlled.


The June 20 hike will begin at 0930 from the AT/Long Trail parking area 2.7 miles east of Wallingford off of Route 140.  We will hike south on the AT/Long Trail two miles to the White Rocks Cliffs, and then return, passing the cairns area and the waterfall where there will be a skinny-dipping opportunity.  After we get back to the parking area, those who want a longer hike can continue north on the AT/Long Trail for as long as desired before returning.


The June 21 hike will begin at 0930 at the AT/Long Trail parking area 3.2 miles northeast of Danby VT.  From Route 7 in Danby, head east on Brooklyn Road (sometimes called Mt Tabor Rd, which eventually becomes Forest Road 10), through the village of Mt Tabor and past the Big Branch Picnic Area.  From the AT/Long Trail parking area, we will hike the 6.5 mile Green Mountain Loop Trail which begins running SW parallel to Forest Road 10.  The trail climbs to the top of Green Mountain, from which there are views of Little Rock Pond below.  It then descends to the pond for a skinning-dipping opportunity before returning south to the parking area.  Anyone wanting a longer hike can add mileage by heading north from Little Rock Pond on the AT/Long Trail or west on the Homer Stone Brook Trail.

Merci John pour cette information qui nous fait un peu rêver de rencontre et de voyage.
Pour ceux qui ont du mal avec la géographie, je suis aller pécher ce lien sur la toile :


Bienvenue dans le Vermont, un lieu à part et revigorant qui valorise l’indépendance d’esprit, la gentillesse, la passion du sport et une certaine ingéniosité. Ses habitants, ses paysages, son patrimoine, ses saisons bien marquées, les couleurs flamboyantes de ses feuillages d’automne, son fameux sirop d’érable, ses brasseries réputées et une abondance de neige inégalée sur la côte Est font de l’État des Green Mountains une destination merveilleuse, propice à toutes sortes d’expériences.
