** Park at the Chamberlain Rd. Parking lot for this hike **
Twin Creek MetroPark
This hike will be strenuous. We start out easy on the Purple loop and then hit the hills, zig-zagging our way through the park to insure you get the full 10 miles! There are some challenging hills on this hike - both ascents and descents - trekking poles are HIGHLY recommended for this hike. We will take a short break at the Eby Rd. Shelter about 2/3 of the way through the hike - bring lunch or a snack and plenty of water. We will see it all on this hike - prairie and meadow, floodplain, Dogwood Pond, ridge top walking, the Hopewell Earthworks, and Camp Hook - the old Boy Scout Camp. This will be a great FITNESS hike!
