On Dec. 13, join friends old and new for a family-friendly, moderately strenuous hike to the top of Crag Mountain in North Granby. Once at the summit, we will watch the (almost) full moon rise, then we will hike along the ridge before descending to Emery Farm for refreshments and holiday cheer.

Meet at Emery Farm, 70 Loomis Street, at 4:45 p.m. SHARP. You will leave your car there and be shuttled to the GLT’s Seth and Lucy Holcombe Preserve on Silver Street. Dave Emery will lead the hike, from the Holcombe Preserve to the top of Crag Mountain for a 5:50 p.m. moonrise, then down the other side of the mountain to Emery Farm, where your car is parked.

No dogs, please. This hike is moderately strenuous, uphill and downhill, over uneven ground in the dark. Please make sure you can handle the terrain. Please bring a headlamp if you have one. RSVPs are required, via email to
