The way I took to the park was River Rd to Douglas Ave. Left on Douglas to the beach. You will drive past the park headquarters to the lot. The lot has a historic sign that says Holland Harbor.
Park in the lot that has swings and picnic table. We will meet there and walk down to the beach past the lighthouse.
The hike will be on the sandy beach to the right. This is where we will do our miles. If you have not walked in the sand, it gives your legs and heart a good workout. You will have a chance to stop and observe the waves, any gulls there and the large beach houses.
The purpose of these statements is to minimize your chance of injury. Please read. These only apply to hikes that I am the hike host.
When you are given a map of the hike route, please follow the map. The map was prepared for a reason to make sure the hike is interesting and you are kept reasonably safe.
When you hike faster than the remainder of the group, you are expected to remain in eyesight of the hike host.
If the hike terrain is not flat level pavement, please dress accordingly.
Suggestions to change the route during the hike must be understood by everyone.
