Itinerary:

Please join me for a hike at Sope Creek .  We will start our hike promptly at 9:00 a.m. and hike for just about two hours and 5 miles.   Hike will be at a moderate pace.  There are a few rolling hills, nothing super strenous.  We will check out the ruins on both sides of the creek and then hit other trails within the park.
