Please check that the trail is open before coming http://sorbawoodstock.org/trail-status/ . They are controlled by the local mountain bike group and we must follow their rules. We will meet at the pavilion which is to the right after entering the park.
Reasons to join this event:
We will be doing all 3 loops on the Avalanche Trail at Olde Rope Mill. The map can be found here: http://sorbawoodstock.org/olde-rope-mill-park/ . The map seems to indicate that it is over 6 miles but multiple gps track have it closer to 5 miles. These trails are shared with mountain bikes but we are required to go the opposite direction and they are easy to see with their lights. The bikes have the right away on this trail so we will need to step to the side if we encounter any. If you want to get in some extra hiking before it gets dark there are several other trails to keep you busy before the official event starts at 8pm.
We will generally go around 3 mph however it may be a little slower with the stops for bikes and the fact that we are hiking in the dark. There are not lights on the trail so you will definitely need a flashlight or headlamp. We will stay together and travel at a steady pace without any planned breaks. The park closes at 11pm so we must be done by then, this shouldn't be a problem unless something out of the ordinary happens. If we move faster than expected and finish significantly before 10 I will do an optional short loop that people can join in on if they want to get in a little more exercise.
