National Trails Day: Early Bird Hike through Flatwoods and Washburn

An 8-mile trek, mostly shaded, through parts of the Flatwoods and Washburn tracts, involving two crossings of Morris Bridge Road and two climbs over gates. with an optional bail-out at 7 miles for anyone who gets too tired or hot.

This will be a repeat of Lenny's hike of May 19, 2012.

We'll get an early start to beat (some of) the heat.

Bring two liters of water, bug repellent, a snack, sturdy shoes and $2 for parking.

On the day of the hike you can call me at[masked]-2905.

    Sorry we couldn't find the group. We wound up walking about 8 miles on the Main trail and loved the scenery. Saw several deer and evidence of hogs.

    Thanks for openness and wonderful conversation. It was a great introduction to the FTA Suncoast Chapter and its mission. My wife and I enjoyed it all and will definitely be checking for upcoming events.

    A great way to celebrate National Trail Day. The scenery was beautiful. The wild pigs, snake, and gators were icing on the cake. Thanks Mike.

    Excellent! Great bunch of folks. I could have hiked twice as far in there.

    Afraid I have to bail out. Impromptu visit from my grandson. Have fun.

    Just so I am clear, the hike is a max 8 miles but we can bail out at 7?

    Emy and I scouted out the hike yesterday. The Flatwoods section was clear and dry, the Washburn section was MUDDY and BUGGY and the river walk was clear and beautiful.
