Day Hike at Weston Bend State Park

We'll meet at the Overlook parking lot and hike a total of approximately 5 miles.  We’ll hike a portion of the West Ridge trail then make a loop on the Paved Bicycle Trail then take the Harpst Trail back to the parking lot.  Bathrooms and a water fountain will be available approximately half way through the hike.  This will be a moderately paced hiked, plan on 2.5 hours to finish.  Wear sturdy shoes and bring water.

After the hike we’ll head into Weston for lunch (optional). Outings like this are one way our local Sierra Club group raises money to fund operations.  A donation of $3 would be gratefully accepted.  Money collected will go toward training Sierra Club leaders in First Aid and keeping up an equipment lending library as well as for local events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.  (See this link for more info:  wilderness50th.org.) 

During the sign-in process all participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. If you would like to read the Liability Waiver before you choose to participate in an outing, please go to: http://www.sierraclub.org/outings/chapter/forms/ .

    I am so sorry not to have posted this cancellation before the event. I know how difficult that is for persons hosting....so please accept my apology. My schedule just got away from me...plain and simple....a good lesson to regroup about activities!

    Sorry, I signed up and now I'm changing to "no"... I'm feeling a bit under the weather and have a feeling I won't be up for a hike so soon. I'll open up the spot for someone else. :)

    I am looking for others that are avid backpackers that enjoy the challenge of the trail and God's creation. I have hiked most of the Missouri trails, most of the OHT, Buffalo River and some in Colorado.

      I enjoy hiking, but have never backpacked. That said, I've been interested for awhile and have some supplies (large backpack, hydration reservoir) but would need some other supplies (small carry-able tent). Also, I would like to get into better shape. However, I've thought about doing a 2-day hike somewhere within 100 miles of where I live (probably on a weekend). Would you be interested in going along with someone less experienced if we could find a time that works for us both?
