For all of you that didn't make it Saturday, let's do it this Saturday!
Macomb, South Dix (Carson), East Dix (Grace), Hough This will be a combination of 4 high peaks in the lower Dix Range. Round Trip is approximately 13 miles, so all attendees must be in good physical shape and have experience hiking a high peak in recent weeks. We will start at the trailhead parking lot at Elk Lake and proceed to Slide Brook lean to. (2.3 miles-approx. 1 hr). From there we will ascend to Macomb Mt. (1.8 miles - 2.5 hrs). We will climb up the slide where we will have continuous views of Elk Lake and the high peaks on the way up. From Macomb we will descend to South Dix (Carson) (.7 miles - 45 min.). We will hike to East Dix (Grace) and back to South Dix with a total of 2.2 miles - 2hrs. The last peak will include Hough (1 mile - 1.5 hrs). The last leg of the journey will be descending the Lillian Brook trail (2 miles -1.5 hours) and then 3 miles back to the trailhead (2 hours). The mileage and times are approximate, but this should give you an idea of the time to complete this hike at a moderate pace. Due to the length and endurance of this hike, please be sure to have plenty of water. A headlamp will be required in case we come out in the dark. As always, be prepared for adverse weather conditions on this hike.
