We will cover 5-6 miles at a moderate pace by heading over to the river trail, adventure up a few of the back hills, hike on the lollipop trail and then loop back around.
Expect to keep a steady pace throughout the hike but we will stop and enjoy the views of the river and the woods.
Liquids are required to go on this hike. No liquids, no hike.
We will meet at the VISITOR CENTER parking lot which is at the end of Island Ford Parkway.
Definition of a D2 hike: Gentle to moderate elevation gain 400 to 1000 feet, moderate pace generally 4-6 miles.
The hike will start promptly at 5:45 pm due to earlier sunsets. Fall is upon us.
Please bring a head lamp or flash light in case we get delayed on the trails.
Up to 2 dogs can come on the hike. Please register your dog when you RSVP. You must use a leash at all times in accordance with the Park rules.
If you do not have an annual CRNRA parking pass, you will need to purchase the $3 daily pass at the pay station in the parking lot.
Do not leave any valuables in your car including the trunk since vandalism has happened in the past.
Restrooms will not be available at start time
