Salisbury, CT–5th Annual Bill Novoa Memorial Taconic Loop Hike with the CT Appalachian Mountain Club

A 5.25 mile hike. A short but strenuous hike over Round, Frissell, and Brace Mountains with spectacular views. Bill led a lot of really great hikes, but this is the one that I associate most with him. Every year Bill would arrange well in advance to reserve the Tuesday or Thursday closest to his birthday (July 16th) to do this hike.

Great views and obligatory stops for ripe blueberries. Even if you didn’t know Bill, you are certainly welcome on this hike. Please join us for memories of our friend Bill as well as the obligatory blueberry picking stops. They will be out somewhere along the trail. Co-leaders are welcome.

Steady Rain cancels. If in doubt, call L Phil Wilsey at 860-306-9501 morning of hike only.Directions: Meet at 8:00 for a prompt 8:15 AM start at the CPL in Canton across the corner from the Saybrook Fish House, Jct. of Rtes. 179 North and Rte. 44 West, for carpool to Trailhead.
