5901 Missouri 163, Columbia, Mi
Because or the weather, I am cancelling this outing. It will be rescheduled on May 18. I hope to see you then.
I just talked to our tour guide and she said to meet at the Devil's Icebox/Rock Bridge parking lot. Please arrive a little early so I can collect the fees in advance - exact change of $8 would be helpful. Depending on the weather, we may eat our sack lunch either on the trail or in the park office. Dress in layers and wear sturdy shoes. I will have a cell phone on Saturday in case you get delayed -[masked]-3295. This is not part of the outing, but afterwards some of us may go to "44 Stones" which is an interesting pub near Rock Bridge SP. Get info & directions here - 44stonepub.com
Tour the Gans Creek Wild Area with a park naturalist. On this Family Farm History Hike we will visit sites of cabins and view historical photos and hear readings about life in the late 1800's -early 1900's. This will be a 3 mile hike on hilly terrain. Bring a drink and sack lunch to eat on the trail. (Historic Site Tour $4 + $4 requested donation to Sierra Club. Your donation will help fund a photo exhibit of Missouri's eight wilderness areas for the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act).
After the hike return to the park store to view a slideshow on the karst features of Rock Bridge followed by a short hike on boardwalk to Devil's Icebox Cave.
