Sat, May 2: Bear Mountain Hike This will be a loop beginning in the Cranberry Lake campground. It will be too early for wildflowers, but hopefully the snow will be gone. Tree foliage will still be sparse, so the views from the Lookout should be lovely. Approximately 5.5 miles RT. Elevation gain 677 feet. Level 2-3, Moderate. Contact Marianne Hebert (315) 265-0756, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sat, May 9: Cat Mountain Hike Beginning at Wanakena, we hike south past Janack’s Landing, glimpsing Dead Creek Flow, then past Glasby Pond, to Cat Mountain, elevation about 2300 ft. We’ll lunch on top, then return the same route. 9.2 miles RT, total elevation gain 750 ft. Rated moderately strenuous for the distance. Joint trip for North Woods and Laurentian Chapters; members only. John and Susan Omohundro, 315-265-8365, email@example.com.

Wed, May 27: Indian Pass Hike A pilgrimage for us, who have multiple paintings of Summit Rock by various artists. From Heart Lake to the pass is 4.8 miles one way, gaining 1200 feet.
