I have some qualifications for this hike.
#1 your new to hiking and want to try a more gentle shorter hike.
#2 or you would like to do a nice hike on this day
Please don't sign up if your comfy with a 8+ mile hike.
During one of the monthly meeting it was asked if we ever do hikes for beginner's or just shorter hikes. Well, not often for me but I'm thinking we could do this one.
Distance is about 6 miles tops, I will confirm it later or we will just shorten the hike.
Elevation is about 800 feet, gain may be more with the ups and downs.
Difficulty I hope we all find it to be a easy hike but fun.
Pace will be moderate. 2 MPH OR LESS
Possible bonus hike at Wahcella Falls if anyone wants more! which is a fabulous hike btw!
Pay your driver $7 please, gas is outrageous at this time.
If anyone wants to join me afterwards at the Mall 205 for eats that would be great!
And I think we will be back by 4pm on this one, if you know me you would be laughing right now!
Please note that there is a MANUAL waiting list for this hike. What this means is that if a spot opens up everyone on the waiting list will automatically receive an e-mail notifying them of the opening. The first person (whether on the waiting list or not) to RSVP gets the spot.
DOGS, well behaved quiet ones I guess would be ok,
