Let's meetup at West Creek Reservation and go for a night walk.

Do you like walking in a park at night listening to the calls of screech owls and other nocturnal creatures? Well, on Thursday nights you can. We will meet at 9:00 p.m. in the parking lot of The Watershed Stewardship Center of West Creek and walk the all-purpose trail until 10 p.m.  This is a walk and not a hike, but it should qualify as a medium paced fitness walk.  We want to also be able to stop and listen to the night sounds and maybe view some deer and coyotes.  And if it's somewhat spooky, that's ok, too.

    All of the group took off while I put something in my car. I couldn't catch up and didn't want to walk alone in the dark.

      Marie, none of us knew you went back to put something in your car. Because we were both talking and walking at a medium pace, we didn't realize you were not with us until we got to the pond a little ways into the walk. We waited a little bit to see if you were coming and then thought that maybe you had decided against the walk because of the pace. I'm sorry.

    It was a good medium-paced fitness walk with a group of nice, friendly people.

    Apparently I missed it. I drove from Lakewood and arrived at 9:01 and no one was around. I hiked 1/2 way in and came back - maybe I'll be on time next time. Sorry iImissed everyone.

      James, we waited about 6 minutes past nine. We all parked in the parking lot right next to The Stewardship Center. I know the sign for the Center points straight, but next time, turn right and it's the parking lot directly past the Stewardship Center.

    I am hoping some one is bringing lamps, I personally don't have a caver's lamp to bring,. Should I bring a flashlight?

      James, it does get dark. Feel free to bring a flashlight. We will mostly stay on the all purpose trail, although at one point, we will go into the woods. It's fun. You'll see a lot of deer!
