This is the first weekend of Spring! Let's do a roughly 2 hr. easy looping hike (just mostly gently rolling trail) at Northwest Park in Windsor with optional big pancake breakfast before. We'll pass through field, forest, and nice evergreen forest with views of the reservoir about half way through.
Meet in front of the Nature Center (see map) at 10 AM and we'll hike from there and take various trails or portions of trails as conditions allow.
Children and leashed dogs are welcome.
Better yet, optionally come early as there is a pancake breakfast held at the park from 8 AM to 11 AM with real maple syrup made at the park! Gloria will be there at about 9 AM.
