John Hawkes was a scout and officer with the British Army during the French and Indian War. He knew the Native American trails and was involved in prisoner exchanges to Canada. During the war, while leading a work party on the Crown Point Road, he is said to have encamped on a mountain which would later be named for him in Cavendish, Vermont.
CPRA Vice President Barry Griffith will lead the hike and share his research on Hawkes' role in the history of the area.
Participants should meet at the Weathersfield school parking lot on Vermont Route 106 just south of Perkinsville village at 10:00 AM and bring a lunch to eat at the presumed campsite
