We will start off by going up a moderately steep hill to warm us up and then head to the perimeter trails to Bull Sluice Lake. There are some rocky ridge trails that we will go on, so be prepared and make sure you wear good hiking boots. 

We will also be going up several other hills that are in the center of the park so realize this is not a beginner’s hike. We will maintain a fast pace throughout with a few water breaks to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the park and pond. 

Up to 2 dogs will be allowed on the hike. Please register them at time of sign up. Dogs should be able to keep up the pace and handle the rocky trails. They will have to be on a leash at all times in accordance of Park rules.

If you do not have an annual CRNRA parking pass, you will need to purchase a $3 dollar daily pass at the pay station in the parking lot.

We will start PROMPTLY at 9:30 am so arrive 10 minutes early to get ready and meet everyone. 

As always, remove all valuables from your car since there have been incidents of vandalism in the past. 

NOTE: There are no restrooms at this location.
