We'll hike at a moderate pace and hope to get in at least 4.5 miles in two hours.  There are some hills and rough terrain, but we won't leave anyone behind. We'll stop at the top of hills and make sure everyone keeps up with the group.

For everyone who makes it through the hike, POPSICLES will await you!


After turning onto Dobbs Drive, drive all the way to the top of the hill and turn right into the parking lot. We will gather at the bathroom facility.  Parking is free.

Pete, please follow the directions provided.  :-)
