Silver Falls Buck Mountain-shortened

We will hike the Buck Mountain Trail about 3-1/2 miles to the junction of the Perimeter and Catamount Trails, then hike back the same way.  We won't be seeing any of the waterfalls, but we also won't have to worry about sliding off into the creek if the conditions are icy!  Plan for muddy conditions.  Please contact the leader by noon the day prior to get on the list to join the hike.
