Once again, we are proving that no event or holiday is so sacred that you cannot hike during it. We have hiked on Easter, Christmas, the Super Bowl, World Series, and now, we take on the World Cup.
An 8-10 mile hike along the Waterloo-Pinckney trail starting at Park Lyndon North, a Washtenaw County park that the trail passes through. The Waterloo-Pinckney trail is 36 miles long and goes from Pinckney (at Silver Lake) to Grass Lake Township (at Big Portage Lake) and has many side trails attached to it. Dogs on leashes are allowed.
The Meeting Spot
The parking lot for Park Lyndon is on North Territorial Road about 1 mile east of M-52 and about 6 miles north of Chelsea. There are two entrances to the park, one on the north end, one on the south. We will be at the north entrance.

Washtenaw County Park's attempt at an interactive map of the area (probably more interesting than useful)
We are parking at a Washtenaw County Park and there does not seem to be an entry fee.
Smokehouse 52 BBQ in downtown Chelsea. 125 S. Main Street, Chelsea, Michigan 48118. It is about 6 miles away from Park Lyndon directly south on M-52. They have some vegetarian friendly dishes and a whole gluten free menu upon request. They also serve your typical bar drinks and beer refreshments.
