Oregon Ridge Novice Hike (Yellow Trail this Saturday)

Starting with this Meetup, We will be designating the last Saturday of the Month as a "Yellow Trail" hike. Though not significantly more strenuous than our normal hike, this one is roughly double the distance and double the time. So, plan for this one to be from 9AM till Noon, just to be safe.

Starting promptly at 9am at Oregon Ridge Park (Nature Center). The Nature Center entrance is on Beaver Dam Rd., only about 50 feet south of Shawan Rd., just behind the Oregon Grille restaurant parking lot. It's called Kurtz Lane on many maps.

We will walk approximately a mile and a half, at a comfortable pace for beginners. We will alternate the many different trails that are there. All trails do require climbing the central hill in the park.

Go here for an excellent map of the park with the Nature Center entrance clearly marked.

We meet in the parking lot between the lake and the Nature Center. Look for the "carved" wooden bench. You can't miss us.

Some may want to stay for a while later and take advantage of the free exhibits at the Nature Center. Others may want to stay for a swim at the lake, in season (one of Baltimore County's best kept secrets), which does carry a daily charge.

I will not post cancellations because of the weather. I assume we're all capable of making that decision as each of us sees fit.

If you decide to respond "Yes" to this event and later change your mind for whatever reason, please,please go in and change your RSVP to a "No". That way, we know not to be waiting for you. Thanks.
