I was feeling in a bit of rut with my normal fitness hike at Sope Creek and figured that I would change it up this week with one of my other favorite parks.
We will keep up a steady very fast pace(4mph -4.5mph) for the entire duration of the hike with NO REST BREAKS. The plan is to take various official and unofficial trails all around the area covering 6 miles. The trails here are a bit tougher than at Sope Creek so we will have to work harder to maintain the 4+ mph pace and may end up going over by a few minutes.
Although the hike is only 6 miles and over moderately sized rolling hills with the occassional steep hill which would normally be a D3 it is rated as a D4 event due to the very fast pace and is most suitable for people who can comfortably complete D4 and D5 events. I would not recommend this being your first D4 or above event. I will be walking the entire way but some people have found that they may have to occassionally jog slowly to keep up.
Please try to arrive a couple of minutes early as we will be starting right on time at 6pm.
We will meet at the INDIAN TRAIL ENTRANCE! There is a $3 parking fee.
