Event Details:

This will be a moderate and scenic hike with some hills, and will take about an hour.


After the hike we will have a picnic potluck. There are picnic benches along Chippewa Creek Drive for use on a first come, first serve basis. Please bring a blanket or something to sit on in case we can't find an available picnic bench. We will plan to have our picnic lunch at around 12:30 pm.

What to bring for the potluck: Bring something to share, your own beverage (this an alcohol-free park!), and your own picnic-style plates and utensils.

What to wear: Make sure to wear either hiking boots, or a pair of athletic shoes that have soles that provide reasonable traction for trail hiking (the surfaces are not paved).

    Please consider bringing a picnic blanket, because with this large a group we may not be able to have space for everyone at the picnic table(s). See you soon! Rebecca and I will be there at 10:30 to scout out the picnic table scene.

    We'll bring some table cloths and Reserved signs. There's some people that can only make it for the picnic, so why don't we establish the picnic time at noon?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
