Buzz #3: October 12 at Tully Mountain
Orange, Ma. – The Tully Mt. hike celebrating the bicentennial of Orange will take place Sunday, Sept. 12, beginning at 11:30 a.m. We will meet at the trailhead which is located at the end of Mountain Road in the Tully section of Orange. The hike will be led by NQW region author Allen Young and the public is invited to the hike.
The FACP will provide a simple lunch for eating at the top of the mountain and has reserved the pavillion at Tully Lake for after the hike if anyone wants to swim and relax.
Tully Mt. summit is 1,100 feet above sea level, and the hike involves about 500 feet elevation gain, so it is somewhat steep. We will descend on a less steep trail. This is considered a moderate hike, about 40 minutes to the summit. We’ll spend about 30-40 minutes on the summit, and then come down, about 40 minutes down.
Allen Young, author of North of Quabbin Revisited and other books of local interest, will talk briefly about the mountain and the environs before the ascent and at the summit. Participants should wear sturdy shoes and bring water.
This event is free of charge. Reservations are required for the lunch by Sept 9 to firstname.lastname@example.org
