After Work Hike at Blendon Woods

Spring is almost here, the sun is out longer.  It's time for an After Work Hike.  This week, we are hiking Blendon Woods.

We'll meet at the nature center.  We'll start by hiking the Ripple Rock, Overlook, Brookside Trail loop.  It's about a 2 mile hike then we will return to the parking lot.  From there we hike the Sugarbush Trail, another 2 miler. We will return to the parking lot.  We finish up by checking out the waterfowl at Thoreau Lake.

Who's with me?

    I am still going to try to make it but might not time wise. How come you decreased it to two miles? Weather?

    Just wanting to clarify the distance of the hike. I was hoping for 3-4 miles. Is that correct?

    Mike, is it okay if I bring at least 3 people to hike tomorrow night?

    Also, I'm going to be passing the hat tonight. If you can donate a buck or two to help with organizer dues, I'd appreciate it.

    We're just going to do a two mile trail and then check out the waterfowl. We are going to skip trail #2 (Sugarbush).

    We see you on Wed at the Nature Center. Not familiar with Blendon Woods. Fun to go some place new. I assume the Nature Ctr location will be easy to fine.

      This is NOT a speed hike. Talk to people, enjoy the scenery. That is why we do this.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
