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.


Stoneplace Trail is an in and out hike of approximately 10 miles.  Inspiration Loop Trail is 1.5 miles.

Stoneplace takes us down an old road bed down to the Tugaloo Lake (that's our lunch destination).  Inspiration Loop has a wonderful view of the Gorge.

I've done some reading on the trail and hope to see some new growth on the Stoneplace Trail.  

Pace is moderately fast, between 2.5 to 3.3 mph.

Carpool leaves at 8:30AM.
