Follow the Mohawk Trail to the Hoosic River Valley. Bring your hiking boots, trekking poles, a camera, map/compass, and a nice picnic lunch. Plan on a moderately strenuous climb, ~3 hr round trip (includes boxing/picnicking time). This hike is suitable for older, outdoorsy kids (10+) and reasonably fit adults. This is a box for those who enjoy a good hike as well as a good box. The view and geology are well worth the effort!
Find the trailhead for:
_____________ v. To yearn deeply; suffer with longing; long painfully.
_____________ n. A rock fragment between 64 and 256 millimeters in diameter, especially one that has been naturally rounded.
Proceed up the blue-blazed trail, 1.6 miles to the Cheshire Quartzite. At the first overlook on the right, head east to a cluster of boulders with a birch in its midst. You'll find what you desire buried in the cluster's heart of stone.
Note 2/17/14: I've only heard of one finder thus far...will you be the next?
