The Columbia hiking group will be hiking Saturday. This will be a unique opportunity to meet some new people and get some much needed exercise for the new year.
The quick directions are take Hwy 63 and go west onto Dear Park Road (make a left if you are coming from Jefferson City) . Some of the road will be unpaved. Follow it until you see the conservation. Look for the first parking area.
Three Creeks Conservation Area is located in Boone County, halfway between Columbia and Ashland. The 1,500-acre area takes its name from the three creeks that run through it: Turkey Creek, Bass Creek and Bonne Femme Creek. The rugged forest features scenic bluffs, intermittent streams, geologic formations and old easter red cedar trees. The area features include an eight-mile multi-use trail open to biking, hiking and equestrian use, as well as a three-mile interpretive hiking trail.
You are encouraged to wear shoes you can take off and put in a bag, etc for cleaning later. Unless it is terrible weather, I plan on doing this hike. This is what it means to be adventurous.
Let car pool. We will leave the Gov't parking lot cattycornered from the Plaza Hotel at 09:15 am.
This is a weather permitting event.
