Hog Island Hike

Both sections of this hike are eligible for the Trailwalker Program.

Double SWAG!

We'll meet at 8a at the Hog Island Campground and shuttle to River Junction to begin our hike.  We'll walk the linear 7 mile section followed by the 1.8 mile Nature Loop.

TOTAL distance: 8.8 miles.

It's a sweet hike!  We'll walk through several different ecosystems, primarily in the shade.

What to bring:  Water, lunch, bug spray.

    This was my first hike with y'all, my first hike with a group really. I feel sad that I didn't stop at the cypress knees that were 6 foot in diameter. They were so amazing and we rushed right by them! I think next time I will try to be more conscious that the goal is the journey and not the destination

    A lovely day for a walk in the woods - we had a great time. Thanks to all the pesticides and natural insect repellant we sprayed on our bodies there were "no bugs m'lady." Most of you are too young to remember that commercial :)

    A great hiking day was shared by all; Many thanks to Elizabeth for great organization and support. It was good to see some familiar faces and new ones. Our jaunt was brief but picturesque and under friendly skies... No free falling meteor-like pine cones this time around... Looking forward to more outings with you all.

    It was a pleasure to meet ya'll! My favorite part of the trek was the nice, shady canopy. This was an excellent choice for a sultry July day. Take care.

    Unfortunately, I have to cancel. I have a friend has a family emergency and needs me to pet sit and I promised my neighbor that I would pet sit his dog as well. I wouldn't be able to make it in time, so someone can take my place.

    I know the event's set from 8-11am, but do you think we'll really make it back by 11am?

      July 12, 2013

    • Ashley I.

      Ah, it must just be when Meetup adds it to your Google calendar that it says 11am. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

    CARPOOLING: Looks like there are several people who are interested in carpooling. Feel free to post here to arrange / find rides among yourselves. Carpooling / ride sharing is a great way to save money, decrease your carbon footprint and meet new people :-)

    I just wondered, is there a reason that the group limits number of people attending? I see this group seems to always have a waitlist

    July 10, 2013

    • treehouseyoga

      The number of participants is up to the hike leader. It's not a set policy of the group.

    I've got a surgery on the 2nd but hope to be ready in time for this one. Please ad me to the list.

    June 28, 2013

    • Camille C.

      What would you like me to change it to? I think I said yes, I would like to join. I'm new at this did I do it wrong?

      July 8, 2013

    • Camille C.

      Ok, I get it, this is for Allen, sorry

    I just opened it up to 20. All the folks on the waiting list are in. Anyone who is NOT ATTENDING, please change your RSVP. Thanks! Elizabeth

      The surgery turned out to be more extensive than initially anticipated. I get the staples out on Friday so I don't think the hike is in the cards.

    I'm currently in "purgatory" on the wait list but I'm hopeful I can move up to the "most favored nation" status soon...I've missed our woodland jaunts together...let's do some miles!

    I haven't been back on a hike in a while, so I'm looking forward to it!
