This is an intermediate hike - depending upon speed, elevations, steps, and mud terrain on any given day. Please make sure you have treads on your boots, and good ankle support - so you support your ankles/knees/hips if there is mud on the trails. Bring water and a trail snack. If you have never hiked the Buckeye Trail, this may be IDEAL - as the conditions may be optimal. This is perfect for those that have done Tuesday 5-mile leisure hike at 3mph and Rosa's intermediate hike - and want to step it up a level. CVNP Volunteers will be at the middle and end of this hike.
This hike is sponsored by the CVNP Service. CVNP Ranger Christine or Pamela will be leading the hike. CVNP is good about getting a 10 minute break(s) in the middle of the hike back to Peninsula Depot Station.
If you are new to this hiking group, please let me know so we can look for you, and include you. There will be 25+ hikers that are not members of our group. We want to make sure you feel welcomed! Questions/Text to cell -[masked]
1:00PM - Optional Restaurant - Winking Lizard after the hike. Reservations will not be made - but hopefully we can find each other and share a meal.
