Day Hiker's Long Trail Hike #3 - Rt. 58 (Hazen's Notch) to Rt. 242

Leader: Thomas Weiss

This was another good hike. But I made the mistake of having the entire group wait at the start until the spotters returned. As a result, we got spread over miles of mountain and never had a good meeting point. I did not realize how steep the first part was; otherwise I'd have had the group start immediately, and the spotters catch up somewhere. The whole section was up and down, up and down. We took about 6 1/2 hours for the 7-mile hike. We did regroup at Buchanan Mtn about 2:00.
