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.


A member told me about this trail last year when it was renamed the Michelle Obama Trail. Let's go check it out. It doesn't appear to be complicated, however, since I've never done it, I must mark it as exploratory.

After the hike, we'll walk (or maybe we'll have to drive) over to the beautiful botanical garden. I was here earlier this year on a "learn" event, and it was so amazing, I want to check the garden out again. It's full of wild plant life and flowers - a must-see (again). Bring your camera!

Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this hike.
