Hiking Trip - 2016

ISW First Hiking Trip.............................................Anjali Arora

ISW did their first ever hike to top of Mt. Wachusett.  A lot of children, and adults joined the hike. We started from the ski lodge and took the Old Indian Trail to the top. The top is at about 2200 Feet. The trail was rockey and steep and people found the hike invigorating. Once at the top, everyone shared the snacks they had brought, enjoyed the nice weather and then everyone hiked back down. A group of people took the Pine Hill Trail down the mountain and some others went down the main road.
