We have a large group camping at Alexander this weekend, so I thought it would be good idea to do a day Hike to Hidden Pond in the Juniper Prarie wilderness. We will start at Juniper Springs, Hike the 5 miles or so to Hidden Pond, Have Lunch and enjoy the amazing scenery in this magical place, then hike back to rejoin the group at Alexander Springs.
This Hike will be the first in our Appalachian trail Tune up Hikes. Today, we will simply day pack into Hidden Pond, so all you will need is your day pack, a couple of liters of water, Lunch, maybe your filter if you want to bring some of the great spring water home from the Pond. I'll want to carry at least 15 pounds with me in the Day pack.
Sunday, for those that joined us for the Hike on Saturday, we can Kayak the Juniper run.
Hidden Pond is an amazing place to camp. Were going to set up another backpacking trip to camp here in the next month or so.
