This is a substitute hike for the one I had planned at Garland Mountain this morning.  The weather in Waleska looks too questionable to take a group on a hike there.  Rain would make the horse trails very muddy . . .  and sitting outside to eat a picnic lunch wouldn't be much fun in the rain.

The people who registered for the Garland hike are being transferred to this event.  As we have withdrawals, new participants will be added up to the limit of 10 members.

Required Items to Bring:


Hiking shoes 



Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

Hiking poles, if you like to use them

Trail snacks

sunscreen, insect repellant
