We'll meet at the Oak Hill Picnic Area at 10:30 a.m. to hike 5 miles of the Oak Hill & Plateau Trails through fields, woods, and ponds. Expect mud..
These are nice trails that run through a pleasantly varied landscape. The Park Service rates them as moderate to difficult (there is a steep uphill midway)... with an easier section warm up the first mile or so at a moderate+ pace. We typically hike approx. 3 mph (which is not a leisurely pace).
The parking lot entrance is located at 3901 Oak Hill Rd... that is south of Rt. 303, west of Riverview Rd., and runs between Major Rd. & Wheatley/Everett Rd. in Peninsula.
*Please check the maps below... and note the route in order to be able travel at your own pace, regardless of your location on the trail.
See you there!
(Route: After crossing the bridge from the parking lot, we'll turn right and follow Oak Hill Trail (always staying right at intersections) until the Meadowedge Pond sign – where we'll veer left... and follow Plateau Trail back to the parking lot).
