Jug Bay Natural Area 8 Mile Hike
A big thank you goes out to Randy G. for planning and helping to host this hike. As she notes below there is a whole bunch of interesting stuff to see at Jug Bay that you can see from your kayak. Here's what Randy has t say about it
Jug Bay is not only a great place to paddle, the Natural Area also has over 8 miles of natural surface trails providing access to a variety of habitats from woodlands to wetlands to open fields. This hike will utilize parts of most of the trails, with an option for a shorter 5 mile hike. The level of difficulty is easy to moderate, there are only a few short sections of the trails that are a little steep. Part of the trail is on a boardwalk through the wetlands area. Pack a lunch or a snack. I hike at a leisurely pace, so everyone should be able to keep up without trouble.
