On Saturday 6/17, members of the outdoor club made the trek upstate to Bear Mountain to tackle a 3.5 mile loop, summiting Bear Mountain after a 1200' climb. The weather cooperated just long enough for the kids to take in the views from the top of the Perkins Memorial Tower over the lower Hudson valley. Club members were also able to interact with current Appalachian Trail thru-hikers on their way from Georgia to Maine. Our final hike of the year proved to be the most challenging but also the most rewarding. Thanks to all the parents who helped carpool! All club members are looking forward to future adventures!
