Join us for a nice evening hike at Vickery Creek. We'll cover approximately 4.5 miles and many of the beautiful trails at Vickery Creek including a stop at the top of the falls to take in the view. We will enjoy a moderate pace, or a little faster depending on our groups pace.
HOOKED ON HIKING...After our hike, we will head just around the corner to Fish Camp for some post-hike dinner. The dinner is optional (dutch treat) but you must attend the hike to recieve credit for the event. Fish Camp drives to the Gulf weekly to purchase fresh, never frozen, seafood directly from fishermen. Entrees range from $19 - $30. We plan to sit outside on the patio.
Here's the Groupon:
