This Labor Day join the MOC for a weekend roadtrip adventure! We will leave Maryland on Friday and drive about 7-8 hours to Killington, VT to set up camp (dinner on the road). Saturday we'll hike parts of the Appalachian trail and long trail up to Dear's Leap for scenic views of the area. Sunday we'll head over to Pico Mountain to enjoy the mountain's summer activities, including Alpine Sliding. If you've never been before, you are in for a treat- think of bobsledding without the snow! Our day pass will give us unlimited access to alpine sliding, scenic chairlifts, mini-golf, and the "bungee thing" at Pico. It also includes a number of other activities at Killington Mountain (about 15 minutes away). Either Saturday or Sunday we'll have dinner out on the town in Killington, the other night we'll cook at camp. Monday we'll pack up and maybe go on a short hike before heading back to Maryland.
