monthly hike at ft. ben

Ft. Ben offers lots of great trails that range from easy to rugged. This park is nice because it's so close to downtown, yet feels so far away from the city!

For this hike, we'll meet at the trail head of the Fall Creek trail, which is near the parking lot by Delaware Lake. This hike will be on the the Fall Creek/Camp Creek loop, which takes about an hour. This trail is moderately rugged as there are stairs and hills. We'll stop for breaks along the way and let any swimmers enjoy Duck Pond.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If it is pouring rain, consider this event to be canceled. Entrance to the park is $5/vehicle. 2013 annual pass for DNR State Parks & Reservoirs. They are only $40 and are good from Jan 1st - Dec 31st.

Trail map is available online.

    We enjoyed this hike a lot; the trail was wider than the one we went on previously, which I much appreciated!

    Our very own Hammer couldn't join us on today's hike because he was competing in a dock diving competition. I just learned that he won first place with a maximum jump of 26.9 feet! Congratulations to Hammer and Staci!

    I won't be able to make it today. I have an interview coming up next week and have to prepare for it. Hopefully Sophie and I will be able to make it next month.

    "Effective immediately, the middle portion of the popular Fall Creek Trail at Fort Harrison State Park will be closed for improvements for about 30 days." We will still meet at the same location, but I'll have a plan B figured out!

    Don't forget that daylight savings time ends and we "fall back" this Saturday night/Sunday morning. Our start time will feel like 9am.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
