A small group of us are heading up to the rock pile on Sunday via the Ammo Trail with a stop at the hut, then summit Monroe and on to Big George. This is a big hike and only the fit should join us. Just Monroe: r.t. 7.2 miles, 2,900 feet of elevation gain, and a book time of 5:05. Just the rockpile: The Ammonoosuc Ravine trail (combined with the Crawford Path), rt: 9.0 miles, 3,800 feet, 6:30. Both: add a mere .6 mile. The Lake of the Clouds hut affords shelter, water and rest. Meet and gear up at the Cog R.R. Station at the end of Base Road (near Fabyans Lounge on Rte 302) for an 8:30 start. Let me know if you wish to join us.
