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.


First time :) hike!  Yonah Preserve (bike and hiking trails) along the Turner Reservoir.  

We haven't decided our walking route, no matter how we do it, we will get in 11 miles.

Carpool Cost: Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $45.60 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.


At Mansell Park and Ride, we will be parking near the fence at the entrance.
