Please Please Please Bring: A Canned Good OR/AND Blankets or Coats Not Being Used For The Homeless Shelter. They lost their grant to take care of these items this month so if we could help that would be great! A Rep will meet us at carpool to take items to the shelter Thanksgiving morning.
Ill be handing out Thanksgiving surprises to all who show. Please change your RSVP if you can't make it. I would really appreciate it.
At the request of some people in the hiking group I have cross posted this meetup..
Missed this hike last year but hopefully we will have enough snow to actually snow shoe in Mill Creek this year on Turkey Day! If by some chance we do not have enough snow we will pick a different location.
It is a great way to start your holiday and get a great work out in before eating all those delicious calories -both years we did this hike we ended up having a beautiful day with lots of fun and tons of great pictures of our snowy trails all along the way...if you are up for it join us for one of the first snow shoe hikes of the year--this will be cross posted with Adventure Seekers of Salt Lake City.
Snow shoes can be rented for approx $12.00 to $15.00 at See and Ski on Fort Union or at REI .Mention the meetup group for the rate....
Details of the Hike:
Dog Friendly--but even numbered days are leash days in Millcreek--FYI
We will carpool to the end of the main road which gets gated for the winter.
We will hike up to Elbow Fork Trail head(this is a road turned into cross-country/dog walking trail)Approx 1.5 miles one way..slight grade up all the way, making this about 3.0 miles round trip.
Bring a camel-back and bottled water if it is in the single digits as the camel back tubes froze last year.
Snacks are recommended...but not necessary.
Bring your camera--we took some breathtaking pictures last year...
This is not a hard hike/walk, but will get you used to snowshoes, and also burn burn some serious calories.
