Saturday, July 20 
Appalachian Mountain Club Hike on the Appalachian Trail
Hike begins at Home Rd in Sheffield. We climb East Mtn to a view rock, traverse East Mtn to the Tom Leonard Shelter and Ice Gulch then down and across Rte 23 with a steep climb up to Benedict Pond. Total distance about 7.5 miles including all the trail in Great Barrington. This is a strenuous hike with some steep and rocky sections. Optional swim at Benedict Pond (there is a bath house), and can stay for an annual community potluck with music that celebrates Great Barrington as an Appalachian Trail Community. And you may be able to talk to some thru-hikers!
The hike is free, but you must register with me to get the specific information.
