Easy hike, estimated time 90 minutes total.  We will meet at 10am at the end of Ganneston Drive off Capital Street, across from the Shell Station (please park on the west side of Ganneston Drive and don’t block a driveway!), and take an easy 10 minute hike to the site of Gannett's two-story treehouse. It is long gone, but the site provides glimpses of the State House, and distant views. A feature is the huge moss-covered boulders, and tall pines, hemlocks and oaks. The trail to the cliff is through a young beech forest.  The group will make some strategic stops to sketch and take photographs. Questions? Call Brian Kent cell no. 242-6278.
