Easy to moderate 7.5 miles rating definitions My hikes are more leisurely....with plenty of breaks for water and snacks....if you are fast hiker and wants to hike fast, or power hiker, this may not be the hike for you.

We will be hiking the ever popular Cochran Shoals trail, but no worries, well be hiking on the hiking on nature trail and hiking trail away from the fitness trail, the trail is mainly in the wooded area and several hundred feet of incline, well hike from the parking lot to paper mill ruin, well have lunch at the ruin on the river.

Required Items to Bring:
Plenty of water (2 litters minimum). Good Hiking shoes. Trekking pole, youll be so glad. (you can buy a good trekking pole at walmart for $9.00) and RAIN GEAR you might not need one, but when the rain comes youll be so glad you have one. Backpack would be better than a small fanny pack. Try to dress warm in layers. Please DO NOT forget your lunch and water.
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
