TRIP #1 of 6 to hike all the trails of Annadel Park
An afternoon trip will allow everyone to accomplish things in the morning and still get in some good exercise and time with friends. Join us on this series of hikes and get to know all the named trails in the park. If you join in our Sunday afternoon hike series, you will get to hike all the trails in the park. This is the first of 6 hikes to do the whole park.
We will ascend the Cobblestone Trail to the Orchard Loop, back to the Rough Go and down to the lake. If we feel strong, we will walk all the way around the lake.. if not, we will walk around the near side of the lake to the Richardson Trail... following that to the North Burma Trail, down the Live Oak Canyon Trail and then back to the cars on the trail that parallels Channel Drive. This is a easy moderate hike. Just a little harder than easy... If you've been on my other Sunday afternoon hikes, this one will be a breeze. Total length is 6.1 miles, but there are some ways we might add a little more length.
On recent trips, we have been seeing dozens of wild turkeys. The males have been displaying their feathers. So come out and hike with the turkeys.
Please read and be familiar with the guidelines of the group as listed below. It’s important before you come on a Wanderer hike that you agree and are prepared with the following.
Give yourself time to find the meeting place so that you arrive prior to the scheduled time. That is the time we head out on the trail. It would be disappointing to miss having you on the hike due to late arrival.
Wear comfortable hiking shoes that are well broken in.
Bring plenty of water.
We might stop for a short snack.
There is a bathroom facilities about 3-4 miles into the hike.
Dress in layers. The hike starts off cool but rapidly warms up.
Please always check your email the night before just in case there are any necessary adjustments.
Bring your smile and great attitude!
See you on the trail!!
BE PREPARED TO EAT BROWNIES.
