The Environmental Law Section invites you to attend its annual day of fall foliage hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act (Sept. 1964), we will be hiking into the Sandwich Range Wilderness. From the village of Waterville Valley, we will do a scenic loop hike up the Sandwich Mountain Trail to the ledges near the top of Jennings Peak 3,440’) and then down the Drakes Brook Trail to the starting point.
