HOT SPRINGS LAKE CATHERINE HIKE -DEPART MEMPHIS AT 6:45.  It is a full 3.5 hour drive from Memphis so we will depart at 6:45am sharp to get to meet the Little Rock Hiking Meetup at 10:30 at Lake Catherine State Park for the hike – this hike is several loops coming back to one spot so you can do shorter hikes if you wish. Carpool info forthcoming!

HIKE INFO:  FROM THE LITTLE ROCK HIKING MEETUP: “I thought it was rather blasphemous that we didn't have any hikes planned, so I decided to throw this up here. I made it later than most of our hikes so that you Little Rockers can make it down to Hot Springs without getting up tooo early. Lake Catherine SP, for those of you that don't know, has three trails that all link together: Falls Branch, Dam Mountain, and Horseshoe Mountain. The trails are moderate in difficulty, meaning there is some ups and downs, and some nice little rocks that are in the way of the trail. Depending on how much rain we get before then, the falls may be doing ok. The views on the Dam Mountain section of trail are nice enough. There is also a really cool bridge that you cross pretty early on the trail. Since I live on the opposite side of this trail from the majority of you, I will leave carpooling arrangements up to you guys. Keep in mind that it is about 60 miles from Little Rock. The trails, if all combined are about 6 1/2 miles. It will take us around 3- 3 3/4 hours based on the average group pace in this type of terrain. Then we can all go for a great meal at one of the fine establishments in Hot Springs.”

WE ARE HIKING WITH ANOTHER GROUP AND WILL DEPART THE HIKE ONTIME!

    OK OK it was a bit (ha! ha!) more difficult than planned, but everyone did a great job!!! It turned out to be a beautiful day and we made some great new friends that I hope to see on the trail again soon. Thanks guys for making such a long ride... Including the walking around downtown Hot Springs, I estimate that we did almost 7.25 miles total.
