Hike Pico Peak with GM Club

October 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Shaw's Parking Lot
64 Equinox Terrace
Manchester Center, VT 05255
RSVP required to Lucinda Chuey

Join the Green Mountain Club’s Manchester Section to hike Pico Peak.

The group will meet at 9 a.m. at the southside of the Shaw’s parking lot in Manchester. Car pool to the parking lot at Sherburne Pass, hike up the Sherburne Pass trail to Pico Camp. From there hike up the Pico Link trail, which is the steepest part of this hike, to the summit of Pico. Have a terrific view, especially at this color season time. Return via a ski trail down to the Sherburne Pass trail a half mile north of Pico Camp and back down the Sherburne Pass Trail to the parking lot. Total distance of 5.4 miles, with 2,100 feet elevation gain.

This is a moderately difficult hike, but quite doable as a moderate hike with a slower pace. Bring snacks, lunch, fluids, extra layers and a wool hat (it is cold on top), a raincoat just in case (this is VT), poles are helpful on the steep bits.
