Lets Meetup and do a New Year Day Hike

Celebrate the year 2013 with hiking friends and do a simple and short hike (up to 3 miles). Maybe even in the snow. Have a bite to eat later to finish the celebration.

      Yes! We should gather people together for a nice hike/walk there. It is sooooo beautiful! I want to revisit this place again and again. I am glad to have this small-group hike after the large group hike!

      we waited for about 10 minutes for those I knew was going to be late. If you know you won't make it at the last minute, please put a note (if you can) on the meetup board. I check it the night before.

    for those of you who are new to the group and like to go ahead of the group what happens is that about the midway point or a scenic spot, the group stops and poses for photos.

    everyone clicked as a group. We were guided to the trail head and at the stopping point decided which way to go back to the parking lot.

    you may want to look at a Meetup scheduled for 1/12/13 at the Fred Meijer Flat River trail to see if that is something you would be interested in doing.

    we need to know the turn around point (1.5 miles). I have a pedometer to tell us. I will be at the back of the group taking photos so some of you fast hikers will do more than the 3 miles. Any ideas?
    See you in a couple of days.

    what are thoughts on hike distance? I think no more than 3. remember it is Jan 1. Looks like we already have a place to go for lunch.
    these are notes I found on the website:
    > This is an area adjacent to the trail behind businesses along West River Road

    > Entry is on Millcreek Ave. just east of West River Road.

    Right down the road from where I live.

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.
