    We'll cross the covered bridge, the Iron Bridge and do the Kingsville county park loop. This trail is my favorite trail so far in the Big/Little Gunpowder parks in the Kingsville area.

    The South trail has some rocky and root areas you need to scramble over. I recommend hiking boots rather than sneakers to protect those ankles!

    Total distance will be 7 miles. There is no bail off area so please be able to do the full distance. Please plan to be able to keep up at 2.5 to 3 miles per hour pace for 3 hours without significant breaks.

    We will step off at 7PM. If you are late post to this message board since I check it right before we step off.

    Dogs are not welcome on this hike.  This will be the first time I've done this hike at night and I do not want the extra complication of dogs, even well behaved ones.

    Bug spray and long hiking pants are highly recommended!

    If you cannot attend please change your RSVP.  Two no-shows will result in blocking from future events.

    This is cross posted with the 20s & 30s Hiking Around Baltimore meetup group. No need to RSVP both places.

    weather.com is calling for scattered thunderstorms tonight. Since we'll be in highly treed areas for the most part I don't mind hiking even in a mild thunderstorm. So I plan to be there.
    If you will not attend please change your RSVP.
    Some of the group organizers, including myself, have adopted a policy of marking no-shows and once you hit two no-shows, you are banned from our future events. So please keep that in mind.

    We have six yes RSVP's total for this hike. Great size group for a night hike. I'm really looking forward to this since I've never done this trail at night.

    As of Friday night 6/28 we have three people total signed up and I'm expecting another one or two people from the Bel Air area to come. Hoping to keep this group small since it is the first time on the trail at night.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
