Sunday Hike in Annadel State Park

  • Apr 14, 2013 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

 

This is our 1st Sunday Hike and will be about 5 miles of easy to moderate hiking (depending on your condition).

 

 

 

 

This place is a gem. You'll likely see wild turkeys, ducks, vultures, deer, and of course the lake.

 

 

 

This was shot last month on the non swimming corner of the lake.

We'll hike up to and around the lake, likely from the Canyon side this time, then returning down Spring Creek.  This will be a good prep for the Ledson Marsh Hike, which is as yet unscheduled.

We'll have lunch at a picnic area on the backside of the lake.

 

No Sunday plans?  Here's a chance to get out, get some exercise in a beautiful State Park, sip some vino, and chat w/ those who enjoy doing the same!

This is a combined event w/ other Meetup grps, so it will be an excellent opportunity to make new friends.

 

 

Directions:

GPS  [masked],[masked]

From Hwy 101 take Hwy 12 East and when it hits the street, keep going straight about 2 miles 'till it T's at Summerfield Dr.  Turn Right there and go 3 blocks and turn Left on Carissa, which you'll follow up the hill to the clearing and park there.

 

 

 

What To Bring:

Vino! and cups

Good Hiking Boots/shoes

Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen.

At least 1 liter of water  - Fill your bladder/bottles 1/2 way and refrigerate the night before, then top off w/ ice in the a.m. and you'll have chilled water all day.

Food (lunch) and more food to share (dried fruit/nuts/seeds, chips, dips, salsa, deserts - be creative!)

Drinks - vino, beer, tea, whatever wets your whistle.

$5 Admin fee - thx!

If you've been on any of my hikes you know what to expect. The vino is required to be a part of this hike... OK, not really, but it's always nice when the vino to hiker ratio is high!

 

Your sense of humour is an absolute must!

      Thank you. He's been ill off and throughout his adulthood. I'm surprised he's lived this long.
