Nature Hike

Come out and enjoy a monthly hike around beautiful Circle B Bar Reserve.  Enjoy the abundant wildlife and varied plant life.  Bring your camera and/or binoculars, water, snack and bug/sun protection.

 

The hike starts at the walkway in front of the Nature Discovery Center building.  You will see a large sign with "Nature Discovery Center" hanging over the start of the boardwalk.

 

The Nature Discovery Center is located at the end of the paved drive into the Reserve and immediately adjacent to the main parking area.

 

You will pass several parking areas and trailheads before you reach the main building complex.

      Suki, if you click on the map from this Meetup.com activity, it will bring you to where you turn off Winter Lake Road into Circle B Bar. The map was slightly off; I have adjusted. Please take the drive in until you get to the buildings. You may want to use Google maps off of this site to get directions and print them out.

    I still have not made up my mind if I will be making the hike tomorrow but if I not there at the appointed time, do not expect me. I have always tried to be on time for every appointment. My seasonal bout with Bronchitus & asma is not as bad as in past times but it is still aggravating. In the past I have enjoyed the good company & conversation & it will be my loss if I can not make the hike.

    I am not sure I know exactly where the Discovery Center is even though I have been at Circle B Bar. Here is my cell number to call in case it gets to be 930ish and I haven't found the group. [masked]

      Liane meets in the parking lot near the buildings. The Discovery Center is the main building in the complex. It has the "tree".

      October 19, 2013

    • David W.

      Once you turn into Circle B from Winter Lake Rd (540A) there will be signs pointing you to the Discovery Center. It is at the very end of the paved drive.

  • Bill P.

    I am not bowing out yet but my yearly bout with Asma is upon me & if all goes as in years past I will be housebound for about a week.

  • Nan C.

    How long do you think the hike will be?

    October 17, 2013

    • Eileen

      Unsure. You can email Liane through MeetUp.

      October 17, 2013

    • Liane P.

      October 17, 2013

  • Dake C.

    Unfortunately I must bow out of this walk; my 96 year old father has taken a turn for the worse and I need to be with him.
    Hopefully I can make the next event.

  • Suki

    Hi everyone! I'm from Ocala, looking forward to meet!

    October 10, 2013

  • Suki

    First time, love out door, can't wait!

    October 10, 2013

  • Emily

    How long is the hike scheduled for 10/20? How big is the group that normally attends?

    October 10, 2013

  • Sandra B.

    How 'bout an absolute definite "maybe" on this one?

    October 4, 2013

  • Bill P.

    I believe I gave misinformation in my last posting. The nature hike is on the 20th of October & Bok Towers, Boktoberfest is on the 19th of October from 8AM to 6PM. Go to the Bok Tower Web Site & check it out yourself. As I mentioned I have gone to it in the past & it is a really good take, Food, Music, Plant Sales, Etc.

    September 27, 2013

    • David W.

      Bill your comment on the Tiger Creek hike is correct. That hike is on the same day as Bok Tower's Boktoberfest.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
