We can tool around Merck Forest.  I'm thinking we can hike Mt. Antone, 5.1 miles and about 1000 feet of elevation gain, then take a short dip in Birch Pond.  The road to Mt. Antone is a bit low for my car so perhaps the vaccinated people can carpool in a car with a higher clearance.  Or we can do some of the other trailsthere.  We'll meet at the Exit 9 park and ride in Clifton Park, time to be determined by the weather forecast but probably between 7-8 am.  I expect us to return by mid-afternoon, perhaps with homemade maple syrup on hand from the extremely nice little store on the farm's grounds.
