Now that it's winter and the mosquitos are hibernating, let's take advantage! I explored some of the Wekiva Trail a few weeks ago, so I know it's good hiking (lots of shade, variety, scenic, quiet, etc). Although it is a 14-mile loop, I plan to just go 4 or 5 miles in and then turn around.
We'll be meeting at the springs, but if you have any trouble figuring out where to go or finding the group, don't hesitate to call/text me at (407) 921-0775. Also, I recommend eating ahead of time, but if you happen to come hungry, they do sell food. Once we're back and worked up an appetite, we'll fire up the grill.
The weather's been having mood swings lately, so if it happens to be a hot day, we'll most likely have the springs to ourselves, as I doubt anyone would come swimming in March. Alternatively, there's also canoeing/kayaking.
Stuff to bring:
- Bug spray (just in case we have a mosquito that likes the cold)
- Grillables for after the hike (I'll bring the charcoal, lighters, spatula, and a little bit of extra food, but probably not enough for everyone)
- Hat/visor if you have one
- $6 entry fee
- Close-toed shoes (sneakers/socks should do the trick)
