Tue, Jun 25 2019 - Sope Creek Summer Style Jaunt (Beginners Welcome) (View Original Event Details)|
Tuesday morning was a great time for our summer jaunt at Sope Creek. We used some of the trails in the park that we don't usually travel but hit many other trails that we regularly hike.
We saw the effects of the recent severe thunderstroms as there were numerous blowdowns and other debris on the trails. We also viewed the effects of the pine beetle infestation in the park which is slowly changing the landscape in areas were pines are prevelant. The group kept together so we moved at a fairly good pace, covering 4.5 miles in 1.5 hours. ~ Holt
