Black Hill Waddle (easy)

  • July 22, 2012 · 9:00 AM

Join us for a walk and a paddle, or “waddle,” a great hot summer outing. We’ll start with a gentle 6-mile three-loop hike (easy or 1.3 blisters) in a quiet, beautiful, but (fortunately) mostly ignored Ten Mile Creek area of Black Hill Regional Park. Highlights include lots of wildflowers, serene lake views, and lack of noise.

For those interested, we’ll then have lunch by the lake and rent boats (canoes, kayaks, or rowboats) and go for an afternoon swim. If staying for the paddle part, bring cash or plastic, or your own boat. Don’t forget a bag lunch and lots of water. Meet at Shady Grove Metro’s east side Kiss & Ride (the side with the parking garages; http://tinyurl.com/7qwfjbg).

    Sorry I didn't find you all. I knew it was a long shot since you probably didn't know I was coming due to the late RSVP. I think I was at the wrong Kiss N Ride at first. Waited there until 9:15 then went to the other one. Even asked a couple of guys if they were part of the "Waddle Hike Group". They laughed. I'm glad they didn't take the question personally. Maybe next time.

    Since this is my neighborhood (I live on the other side of the lake), I'll meet you all at the start. Will we be parking at the bottom of 10 Mile Creek road? Or on Clarksburg road?

    Mike, About what time were you thinking this would wrap up - w/ & w/o paddling? I have afternoon plans & don't want to RSVP incorrectly. Thx.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
