Sandy Hook - Fort Hancock at 9:00am

Reminder for the Sunday walk at Sandy Hook.  The north end of the Hook will be busy with a triathlon so we are changing plans a bit and will meet at 9:00 at the pavilion in Parking Lot B and walking over the bridge to the Twin Lighthouse in the Highlands. You can park in Parking Lot B which is the second lot on your right or  Lot A which is on right, right past the toll booths and take a short walk up to Parking Lot B. You may want to come alittle early to get a parking spot, but we will still leave at 9:00.

After the walk when we get back to the parking lot, we can hang out for a bit in the pavilion and munch on the goodies that we will bring with us. Fruit, Brownies and Breakfast Bars are a good example of what to bring. Also... Please bring a Thermos of Coffee or what ever your drinking because they have No Vending Machines... 

Only Heavy Rain Will Cancel This,,,, It will be posted on this site as well as you getting E-mails,,, If in doubt,,, Check it out,,,

So we'll see you on Sunday, Sept 8th 9:00am at Fort Hancock.

    Greatt hike, beutiful weather with very nice people. So Doreen so for the first time after being a member of this group for the last year we take this first walk on Sandy Hook and you are the leader. this was great. I think you found your calling. Is there an opening for a group needing a leader. You got my vote!

  • Doreen

    Leah, I think you are going to have to keep Gunnison Beach in your bucket for a little while more. I WAS planning on your "plunge" as the finale!!

    September 5, 2013

  • Doreen

    If I was changing the departure time, I would have posted that. It is still 9:00, only suggested getting there at 8:30 for parking

    September 5, 2013

    There is a slight change for the Sandy Hook Walk. Seems there is a triathlon on Sunday morning and the north end of the Hook will be crowded. Instead we will park in Parking Lot A or B and walk over the bridge up to the Twin Lights. FYI, This walk will be a little more strenuous as we will walk over the Highlands Bridge and UP to the Twin Lights. I would suggest getting there alittle early, maybe 8:30 and we will meet at the Pavilion in Parking Lot B. If there are open spots in Parking Lot A-the lot on the right immediately past the toll booths, I would grab them and it is a short walk to Parking Lot B. After the walk, we can head to the beach to munch on our goodies. Any questions, feel free to email me. Thanks

    • Albert

      I would propose to change the meeting invite to 8:30 so people who do not read this mail do not come late. Also since it is quite a big group I would put up a time when we leave the parking lot regardless what.

      September 5, 2013

  • Patty

    You took the thoughts right out of my brain. I would love to do that but I have to get my bike in order. Will let you know if I got it done before Sunday. ;~)
