Foothills hike - Easy

We will hike 4-5 miles in the Foothills area (less than 1000' elevation gain), either north or south, maybe a loop or up one of the trails depending on weather.  EASY pace, all skill levels are welcome.

It is now WINTER hiking weather, so I recommend gaiters, hiking boots, coats gloves and hats (dress in layers), and micro-spikes in your pack in case we run into icy patches on the trail.  This will be true from now until late March.

$1 fee at the entry station pay envelopes or to the gate guard.  There are restrooms in the parking lot.

Friendly dogs okay but must be on leash.


Check back the morning of hike before 8am in case ugly weather causes the hike to be canceled.  Please be at trailhead ready to hike on time, we will start walking at 9:05am.

    I am sick today, so I will not be going on the hike. Hope to be on the next one.

    Hiked the area yesterday and there was mud and some icy slick spots but I think they should be mostly gone by hike time.
