Plan is for a loop trip starting on the Bear Ridge trail. We will pass the Fantastic Erratic, stop for a brief view of the Clay Pit, then continue past the Mine shaft. Length of the return loop will depend on weather conditions and group energy. I'm trying to refresh my naturalist skills so there may be occasional brief stops for viewing of mosses and lichens and other winter greenery.
