Easter Hop at Shiloh Ranch for a short ramble! (Good Exercise)

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Take a break from searching for Easter eggs and join me for some quick exercise!  Rumor has it that there may be one golden egg along the route for a lucky Easter hiker... It's about 3.5 miles with an elevation gain of around 600 feet.  This will take us less than 2 hours to do.    It's short and will leave you with plenty of time to continue on your way to a Easter dinner.

    We head out on Big Leaf Trail and quickly take a left onto Creekside trail for a walk up a canyon under shady pines and oaks.  After leaving the canyon we enter a grassy valley complete with a scenic pond.  We continue up the Ridge trail and take a left on South Ridge trail to reach the top of the park and the vista area.  We then continue down on South Ridge to Big Leaf trail to reach the parking area.  This hike does have hills but they are gradual and somewhat rolling.  As long as you are comfortable with hiking on trails and hills this is a great hike for the beginning to intermediate hiker.

     

    It's a short hike, but as always it is a good idea to come prepared with the following:

    • Water
    • Sunblock/Hat
    • Layered clothing as it will start off cool but quickly warm up!
    • No dogs allowed at Shiloh
    • Comfortable walking shoes

      FYI--THERE IS A $7.00 PARK ENTRY FEE TO PARK AT THIS PARK.  Thank you for supporting our park system!

    I'm going anyway. I come from South Dakota and thunderstorms do not scare me. Have a great Easter everyone!

      Nuts! I just walked in the door. I went a little early thinking I would be alone. I wish I had known there would be someone there too. :(

    Shucks!!! I'm cancelling this hike.....Some of the weather predictions include thunderstorms for this afternoon and I don't think we should risk it! If it was just rain, I would say let's go for it....Shiloh is beautiful when it's raining but I wouldn't want anyone out on the trail if there is a thunderstorm!
    Happy Easter everyone and I hope to see you soon!!!
