Sunset Hike: Eagle Cliff

The program will consist of a nice leisure hike up Eagle Cliff trail to the lookout point of Eagle Cliff. Along the way, we will discuss the efforts of the SLA and what we do in terms of trail maintenance and our mission. At the summit of Eagle Cliff, we will watch the sunset and treat ourselves to nice warm drinks. We will then hike down the Eagle Cliff trail using head lamps to light the way.

Audience:

All ages. Participants must be capable of hiking roughly one mile roundtrip of steep ascent/descent and must be comfortable hiking in the dark.

This Week's LRCC Guide: 

My name is Connor Piechota and I love all things outdoors. Since first coming out to New Hampshire, I have been drawn in to exploring as much of the wilderness as I can. I love hiking in all kinds of conditions and am passionate about conserving and protecting the environment so others can enjoy it.

SLA's Adventure Ecology Trips:

Throughout the year, the Squam Lakes Association offers free programs open to the public on a variety of nature and conservation related topics. The Adventure Ecology programs are presented by the Lakes Region Conservation Corps members who spend their year on Squam performing important conservation work in support of the Association's mission.
