Easy Hike - Lonnie Loop from the Visitor Center

This hike is rated EASY, however, the trail is rocky so I recommend wearing sturdy footwear.

Come out for a hike from the 7th Street entrance to North Mountain Park. This is an easy hike and perfect for beginners or if you'd just like to do an easy one for a change. The trails are relatively flat with some gentle ups and downs, and one short but steep hill. We'll take the #100 trail from the 7th Street parking lot to the #306 trail then back to the #100 in a big loop. Bring a flashlight or headlamp, part of the hike will be after dark. You're encouraged to bring snacks, cameras, and must bring at least 1+ liter of water per person and sturdy hiking footwear.

This is a combined event with Trail Mix, we will be hiking at a moderate pace.

DISTANCE: 3.5 miles round trip
ELEVATION GAIN: 100 ft
DURATION: 1.5 hours
TRAIL STYLE: Big loop
DOGS: Yes, if leashed.
FACILITIES: Drinking Fountain and Restrooms

    Absolutely superb weather last night with the nice breeze! It could not have been better. Great hike, great exercise, and I slept like a ROCK.

    Thanks Lonnie!
