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.


Please join me for an exploratory hike of the Dauset Trails.  I have allotted 4 hours for hike, allowing for a couple quick water breaks.  Some of the trails connect with Indian Springs State Park.   Classified as a D3 for the distance.  Will keep a steady moderate pace, there is not much elevation at Dausett

We may be slightly over or under on time or mileage but I will try to hit that 4 hour mark as best I can.  Pack plenty of water. There are hiking trails and biking trails, at times we may have to share trails with bikes.
