Walk Plum Island Beach in the Parker River Rufuge, Parking Lot #1

The weather forcast looks good for Sunday.  I'll meet hikers at the Rufuge Headquarters at 9:45am and car pool from there or you can go right to the Rufuge and pay the $5 fee.  Meet me in parking lot #1 at 10am.  I plan on heading south towards Sandy Point for about three miles and returning.  That should take about three hours. The tide will be ebbing so the walk will be easier.  If you want a shorter walk just turn around any time you want.  I'd like to follow that up with hot chowder downtown Newburyport.  There's lots of choices.  There are a few places on Plum Island that we can also try.

    The weather didn't look good at the start and did improve. It was a great time. The Chowder at Beachcoma (yes that's how they spell it) was excellent. I hope 7 miles was not too much. I guess we were a little "Intense". Thanks to all that showed up.

    If a few people are planning on not meeting the group at 10 but doing their own walk later on, they should probably change their RSVP to open up spots for others who would like to do the 10 AM walk.

    Footwear: what would be appropriate? Do I need to worry about wet feet? Thanks!

      With any outdoor activity there is a chance of sudden weather change. You have to use your own judgement. On this web page Under More and Files you will find a Hiikers Code and recomended items to bring. Take from that list what makes sense to you.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
