We'll do the usual route - lots of ups and downs to give our legs and hearts a great work out, with only a couple of quick stops. Most of the hike is along the water's edge and really beautiful. We do the outer loop trails as well as a few of the inner trails in order to get in our total mileage of 6 miles. 

The pace will be fast with only a couple of stops, so this is not a hike for beginners. 

Please arrive 10 minutes early for introductions. Also, you have until 10:00 pm on the day before the hike to remove yourself if something comes up. After that time, please text me or call to cancel.

Just a reminder - there are no restrooms here! And don't forget your parking pass or $3 for parking.

Dogs are not allowed on this hike.
