Vigorous Hike 8+ miles Danada in Wheaton

Let's pick up the pace...keeping to 4 miles per hour and we will have this hike finished in a little over 2 hours! Is anyone interested in a quick lunch afterwards? I was thinking Jersey Mike's, which is right at Danada Square East, but I am open to other quick and near locations.

This image gives you an idea of the path I intend to take, but we may vary a bit and the distance may vary (slightly), as well.  My intention is to take the 2.8 mile hike 3 times, unless we can find other variation to complete 8 miles.  I have been to this location a few time, but I do not know all the paths/trails yet.

    I may have to bail - a friend's uncle is doing me a big favor by looking at my dead AC system is can only do it at 9-930am Sat :( If he cancels I will come however.

    Big issue in the Senate for hiking and walking fans:

    http://support.railstotrails.org/site/Survey?ACTION_REQUIRED=URI_ACTION_USER_REQUESTS&SURVEY_ID=7320&autologin=true Senator Rand Paul (KY) just introduced an amendment to strip all funding from the Transportation Alternatives Program!

    The Transportation Alternatives Program is the largest source of funding for bike lanes, pedestrian safety projects and the Recreational Trails Program.

    But Sen. Paul wants to eliminate this important — and already underfunded — program that helps keep our communities safe.

    A vote could happen TODAY!

    Please call your US Senators TODAY and say “vote NO on Amendment 1742!”

    I am thinking of bringing my dog and doing 2 of the 3 loops. Are pets welcome?

    July 23, 2013

    • Rhonda

      That is up to you, but as mentioned, this hike will be at a vigorous pace. I do not know that we will actually be doing "loops", so you may end up turning back on your own if you decide you need to. It really depends on who wants to continue at the time you want to head back.

    gotta be a "maybe" for now

    Rhonda, Toni and Nik on the same hike - definitely a vigorous hike - and we will need chocolate! It's been awhile - I've missed you guys!

      Yes, I am :-) It will be nice catching up!

      I keep trying to make it to your weekday hikes - work has been getting in the way :-(

      Hey Princess - vigorously eating chocolate - well that is what those that can't keep up on the hikes do... :-)

    I know the trails pretty well btw. I work nearby and hike the little 1.1 mile on lunch sometimes, and have done them all between biking, and my company-sponsored 5k last year.

    I have a PMP cert. exam 8am Sunday so mostly cramming this weekend, but I think a brisk hike Sat. is a good way to make sure I fall asleep early that night, so I am in if I don't get detained otherwise! Thanks!
