Taylor Lodge/Clara Bow Loop
Friday, August 17, 9:00 AM. Join us for a hike to Taylor Lodge on the Long Trail. We begin our hike on the Lake Mansfield Trail passing the old settlement of the Town of Mansfield. Passing a series of beaver ponds, we will stop by Taylor Lodge, named after GMC founder James Taylor. Just North of Taylor Lodge, we will pass through Nebraska Notch on the “rugged but beautiful” Clara Bow Trail. We will head back to Taylor Lodge on the Long Trail and then back to the parking lot on the Lake Mansfield Trail. Moderate. 3.6 miles. Trailhead location.

Friday, August 31, 9:00 AM. Join us for a hike up Camels Hump via the Monroe and Alpine Trails. We will stop to view the 1944 crash site of a WWII bomber. After a nice rest on the summit, we will head back down to the parking lot on the Monroe Trail. Moderate to difficult. 7.1 miles. Trailhead location.
