I went out today to scout some off trail paths and found some great ones. I will incorporate this new found terrain on this hike. I added some distance, a lot more off trail hiking and include some climbing up/down side of hills!
This is not an easy hike by any measure. We will be be going up and down steep ravines and hills.
This hike will be a 15 or so mile hike, we will try to make it in 5 or so hours.
This is not a beginner hike so please keep that in mind before you RSVP.
This hike is limited to 15 hikers, because it is a single track for certain portions of this trail. We need to share with bikers that also want to enjoy this wonderful trail.
If you don't get on this hike...there will be others scheduled, so please don't just show as that is just NOT cool!!
Please dress accordingly. I recommend layers, starting cooler as your body will warm up within the first quarter mile.
The terrain is hilly with uneven, sometimes narrow trails. Don't forget to bring water and snack for the hike. We may even find ourselves on all fours to get through some of the off trail terrain.
We will meet at 8:45am and start the hike at 9:00am sharp. Please be on time.
We will meet at Red Gate Woods. Red Gate is just East of Route 83/107th Street.
Don’t Forget: Dress for the weather in layers, I would also bring some protective eyewear and a pair of sturdy gloves for the trail.
Bring a snack and plenty of water as there are no water sources on the trail.
I hope to see you Saturday.
Also, if there is enough interest we can for lunch at Irish Legends afterwards.
I will send out contact information the night before the hike.
