This Monday morning hike will be through Vickery Creek, starting at Riverside Park on Riverside Road. This starting point offers lots of free parking spaces plus bathrooms!
We'll cross Riverside Road and hike through the official Vickery Creek parking lot into the park, taking a clockwise loop around the unit. Vickery Creek is a park that offers a variety of trails and routes, beautiful views of the water along the creeks and at the dam, and occasional glimpses of wildlife. We'll keep a moderate pace with pauses for water along the way.
The trails at Vickery Creek are not easy. There are several hills as well as trails with lots of roots and rocks that would prove very challenging for inexperienced hikers. If you have no record with the AOC, I will email you to make sure you aren't getting in over your head on your first event!
Hiking poles are highly recommended, especially after recent rains!
Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to use the bathroom, check in, and do intros.
|How to Get There:|
There are bathrooms at Riverside Park and free parking
