The trip will introduce everyone to the Historic Site and the Old Man Memorial and will update attendees as to recent and ongoing activities related to 3D mapping and rockfall study on Cannon Cliff and the activities of the Old Man Legacy Fund in the north-central part of the Notch. The field trip will end at or close to 3:30 PM so everyone can get to the Highland Center in time for Happy Hour beginning at 4:30 PM.

The total hiking/walking mileage will be ~ 1 mile on largely paved pathways.
