Itinerary:

Because of a glitch in the registration process, we've run into the problem of having too many members added to the active list above the maximum limit of 20.   Please be aware that we will be moving members above 20 registrants to the waiting list in the order of their registration times.  People will then be added to the active list as we have withdrawals.   

Joyce is away this week so we'll hike at her regular weekly hiking location.  I usually don't go here just because I know she does it every Thursday and I know it's nice for her to go other places.  

Come join me for a nice morning hike at Island Ford! We will enjoy many of the trails at this beautiful park. We'll move at a moderate pace as we take in the sites there!


We are parking in the first lot on your left as you enter the Park.  We will start on time, so please arrive 10 minutes early to buy a parking pass and to meet your fellow hikers. (This park requires a $5 parking fee, so if you don't have an annual pass, be sure to bring $5 cash.)

We will pass the Visitor Center during our hike, so if needed, we can take a quick bathroom break. 

 


Required Items to Bring:

Comfortables shoes or hiking boots and Water
$5.00 or your annual pass 

Recommended Items to Bring:

Hiking poles if you have them

Clothing appropriate to the weather
