The Hike: It's a mystery! The route will be revealed the day of the hike. This will be a longer hike so bring a snack and extra water, it may be HOT! If you have to be back by a certain time this may not be a good hike to go on.

This will be a nice hike!

      Ok, look for future hikes that we have they usually last about 1 1/2- 2 hrs and are about 3+ miles long,

      Cathy, I am very flexible with the count, if you want to come you are more than welcome to still join us. Usually not everyone who signs up comes and people who don't sign up show up any way, so come on out and meet some new people and some nice dogs!

      See you on the trails!
