Our Monday morning hike this week 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 up a neighborhood hill into Vickery Creek, 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 steady 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, or can't keep up the pace on hills, I will email you to make sure you aren't getting in over your head on your this event!

Hiking poles are recommended, especially after recent rains!

Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to use the bathroom, check in, and do intros.  We'll start on time, so please arrive by 9:50 so that you can use the restrooms and meet your fellow hikers.

Required Items to Bring:


Fluids, good hiking shoes/boots

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


Hiking poles are recommended. There are elevation changes, roots and rocks!
