Independence Oaks Hike (north of Clarkston)

  • Apr 6, 2014 · 11:00 AM

 Hike 5-6 miles at a moderate pace through rolling, wooded terrain with 3 large hills. We might see some of the spring flowers. When we get near the lake, we will hike quietly and may see the resident beavers. First we visit the Nature Center to look at displays, enjoy a bathroom stop, then go hiking.  Optional restaurant stop after. Questions?  Contact leader: Elaine Danas,[masked]H. 

Meet:  11am in Bloomfield Hills behind the CVS pharmacy on the S.E. corner of Woodward & Square Lake Rd. (northeast end of lot).

    Fun fun fun! Wish I could have stayed for the meal afterwards but it was a great day for a hike with the regulars and newcomers alike.

    Saw Linda at another Meetup tonight (Saturday). She had hiked Independance Oaks this afternoon & there was still a lot of ice.

    We will be meeting for carpooling at 11 am at the CVS. For those going directly to the park, we'll meet in the Nature Center lot, ready to hike by 11:45.

    Well, I can fit it in if maybe I skip the restaurant after. Very unlike me, I know. Would be a shame to waste the nice weather that's forecast by sitting at home. I'll meet you at the Nature Center.

    My guest and I would also like to meet up with the group at the park as well.

    I live closer to the park. Can I meet the group there? But, exactly would when and where is there?

    Based on the condition of the trails Saturday, 3/29, at Stony Creek and the anticipated temperatures this week, hikers should be prepared for mud.

    Can't quite squeeze this one in with my other plans that day. Hope the trails aren't too muddy!
