WESTMINSTER WEST, Vt. – Some might think Accessibility Day is a strange name for a Windmill Hill Pinnacle Association program, but it’s to the point. The event, on Saturday, Sept. 16, 10:45 a.m.-4 p.m., is a special opportunity for those who cannot hike long distances over uneven ground to get to a rural site that always offers an awesome view. Once a year, WHPA makes that trip possible by providing transportation to those who need it.
This year’s destination is a new one to the program. A friend of WHPA has given permission for the public to visit his private property, which sits atop the Windmill ridgeline between the Pinnacle and Paul’s Ledges, totally surrounded by Pinnacle Association lands, with a spectacular view of the ski mountains of Mt. Snow, Stratton, Bromley, Okemo, and beyond.
Advance registration is a must for riders, due to the free program’s popularity and need to arrange for four-wheel-drive or other appropriate vehicles. Hikers do not need to pre-register.
Please bring water, bag lunch, and sweater for chilly weather. Meet at Westminster West Church at 10:45 a.m. to carpool. Register with Bev Major at 802-387-5737 or Elaine Gordon at 802-869-6103.
The event will be will be held in sunny or cloudy weather but will be canceled in rain or bad weather. For information about this and other Pinnacle Programs, visit www.windmillhillpinnacle.org.
