The Ragged Mountain Foundation is pleased to announce that we have secured free parking for climbers and hikers who would like to explore the Electric Rocks area in Southington.
The YMCA Camp Sloper Outdoor Center has graciously allowed the RMF to purchase a parking pass for on behalf of our members.
This parking pass is secured through an annual donation by the RMF to the YMCA Camp Sloper. Such a donation is only made possible through the generous support of members of the Ragged Mountain Foundation - Thank you.
