Paris Mountain Afternoon Hike

Distance: 6.2 Miles (with an additional 0.75 mile option)

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate

Estimated Hiking Time: Approximately 3 hours

Fee: $2.00 entrance fee to get into park

Required: Bring at least 1 liter of water with you on the hike. 

Please join me for a nice and somewhat different afternoon hike at Paris Mountain State Park. We will be hiking the Mountain Creek and Sulpher Springs Trails with the option to hike the Lake Placed Trail afterwards. We will meet in the main parking lot across from the Park Center (Park Office). We will start by taking the Mountain Creek Trail north, turn left onto the Turtle Trail and take it and the connector trail back to the Mountain Creek Trail. Next we will turn left onto the Mountain Creek Trail, right on the Sulpher Springs Trail and hike it around and back Mountain Creek Trail. We'll turn right onto the Mountain Creek and follow it to the Lake Placid connector trail. From there you will have two options. Options A: you can continue on the Mountain Creek Trail approximately another 0.2 miles back to the parking lot across from the Park Center. Option B: you can hike the Lake Placid Trail with me another 0.75 mile to back to the parking lot across from the Park Center. I will be including some fun facts. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this hike with me please either send me a message, or leave a comment. You can also contact me by email at: [masked].

    There may be a lot of people in this group who don't know me yet or haven't hiked with me before. Also this will be my first time officially leading a hike. So I thought I would share a little about myself. I'm 40 years old and an experience hiker/backpacker. I've been hiking since I was in a teenager in Boy Scouts. I've done a lot of hiking with Janice since joining this group and have helped her lead a few hikes. I'm a nice, friendly and easy to get along with person. I like to plan a hike in detail. I know my way around Paris Mountain State Park like the back of my hand. When hiking in a group I'm hiking with a I'm very good about not getting that far ahead of the group and waiting for the group at trail junctions, road crossings, hill tops. Also I'm always happy to share experience. I hope you will come support me by joining me on my second hike as an official hike leader.
