I will be co-hosting this event with Jim Robbins, who is an experienced educational volunteer. Along the way he will teach us a thing or two about what we are seeing around us. Bring the kids!
This hike will be canceled for inclement weather, so check your email if the weather looks "iffy".
This will be our usual short jaunt at Hawk Mountain. I'm not going to set any plans in stone. We will base our day on how well everyone is holding up. This hike will be at about 2 miles round trip. We will visit the South Lookout, North Lookout, and a few smaller vistas in-between.
We're going to keep a slow, kid friendly pace. That way we can really soak in the views at the various lookouts. Don't forget to add your kids as guests when you RSVP. I'm allowing each member up to 4 guests for this hike.
Tips for hiking Hawk Mountain with kids.
Hawk Mountain DOES NOT allow pets.
They do charge a small fee for the use of the trail system ($6 Adults, $5 Seniors, $3 Children 6-12), which you will have to pay at the visitors center. We will meet at the small pavilion at the corner of the parking lot (near the native plants garden). If you cross the street and enter the trail system, you probably walked past us. For those of you who use the trails multiple times a year, I'd suggest buying a membership. It gets you unlimited trail use for a year.
