When: October 26,[masked]:30 AM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: Hello everyone!
Details, details... well, it's a nice trail. It's heavily wooded along the creek and there is almost always water flowing. We will cross over the creek's small dam / waterfall and climb...yes, climb :) ...a ledge that's about 20 feet up. The climb is not too difficult, if you are in fairly good physical condition and if you absolutely can't make the climb, I think there is an easy way to circumnavigate it... we'll wait for those that choose not to climb ;).. The next part of the trail ascends fairly quickly, but not difficult at all and once we are up a way, we will have a great vista looking down on the creek. After the 5 to 10 minute ascent, the rest is down or mildly graded.
Bring shoes that you don't mind getting wet... you may need to wade in water when crossing the creek. Total hike time shouldn't be more than 45 minutes, of course, depending on number of stops to take in the views.
Dogs are always welcome to this group; however, I haven't checked the rules that pertain to pets on this trail. I've seen dogs on numerous occasions here though.
A place to meet for breakfast afterwards has not been decided... suggestions?
