Let's get outdoors, hike some great trails and socialize at the same time.
The Saturday hiking series continues at Johnson Lake Park this week. We will hike around Johnson Lake for approximately 5 miles, covering both the East (paved) and West (unpaved) loops. The unpaved loop has quite a few roots, rocks and uneven ground, so either hiking boots or sturdy footware is advised. Please dress appropriately for hiking and bring water if you would like to have it on the trail.
Driving and Parking directions:
Parking can be challenging at Lake Johnson. We’ll meet at the parking lot that is off Lake Dam road(1232 Lake Dam Rd). It is usually less crowded than the lot near the boat house. An alternative plan is to park at Athens Drive High School, which is about a 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot. Car pooling is encouraged! There are restrooms and water at the boathouse.
We will leave at 10:10 sharp, so please be on time. The hike will run approximately 2 hours.
