Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.


Please join me for a late afternoon hike at Sawnee Mountain - we are not climbing the traditional mountin trail but will explore the newer trails.  The plan is to hike about 5 miles in about 2 1/2 hours. pace will be about 2 1/2 mph on the level areas but we will be taking it much slower on the hills. There are quite a few hills but this will be a nice and easy hike

If you are looking for a fast paced hike this is not it.


Parking is free

Restrooms are available

sorry, no dogs allowed at Sawnee Preserve

Please arrive about 15 min early in order to use the facilites and meet your fellow hikers - we will leave the parking area promptly at 4:00
