Hike Jerusalem Mill South then Lunch (Format Changed)

I changed the format of this event.  I didn't realize how much of a mess the contractors would make of my house.  So I'm going to host a regular hike at a great trail and then we can grab lunch at a local restaurant.  Gunpowder Lodge, Margerita Pizza, Maria D's are all options.

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 6.2 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 10AM. If you are late post to this message board since I check it right before we step off.  If something happens and you need to reach my txt or call me at: 301-6five5-5327.

Dogs are welcome on this hike.  But they must be well behaved dogs and there will be areas I ask you to leash them for their safety and the safety of other hikers.

Long hiking pants are highly recommended!

I expect all hikers to be respectful to each other.  One would think this doesn't need to be said but I've had some issues recently.  So I need to make a rule that allows be to reference and say, hey you, go be a jerk somewhere else!

If you cannot attend please change your RSVP.  Two no-shows will result in me asking you to remove yourself from future events that have a wait list.

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

    Sorry for the craziness at the parking spot. I had no idea there was going to be a cross country event there. As usual the south trail was completely empty once we got about 1/2 mile in. If I marked you as a no show and you attended, please let me know. Hope to see you all on the trails again!

    Really friendly group of people. Trail was beautiful. Only downside was the heat. An earlier start would have made it more enjoyable.

    I changed the format since my place is going to be in a shambles with the contractors attacking various parts of the house.
