Hog the Ground Day

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is pretty much the "rain date" of the New Year's Day hike but will be on Ground Hog Day.  Meet behind the restrooms under the picnic shelter.

This is a flat, easy hike/walk- out and back up to about 8 miles.  99% Greenway so tennis shoes will be appropriate for this hike/walk.  We will go out to the Airport lookout and have lunch.

Well trained dogs on leashes not over 6' long are welcome.  Please remember water & poo bags.

 

Pack a lunch and a small towel/blanket to sit on for lunch break.

    I went to 1100 Norwell at 10 a.m., but did not see the group. However, I met Lea, another member also looking for the group. So we hiked the trail there around Crabtree Lake. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time! Hope to meet more members at another event in the future.

      I think there must be two 1100 Norwell addresses. Both Leah and I used GPS that took us to the Verizon campus, not a park. No biggie! We enjoyed a great natural trail around the lake (6 miles). I highly recommend it. Catch you another time.

      Thanks, Cat. I'm actually doing that hike in 2 weeks. It has always been my favorite

    What is the policy for making sure everyone gets back....some of us missed the bridge and walked another mile or so...having no idea where we were. There is something to be said for sticking some what sticking together. Aside from that I really enjoyed the walk and meeting new people. Thanks!

      There will always be folks who walk ahead of the group. If you are ever in doubt or come to a split in a path...just wait for the group to catch up. It is your responsibility to stay with the group. Sorry if that sounds mean. I dont mean to be.

      I agree as with most meetups it is almost impossible to keep everyone together, especially outside. We are all adults we really don't need supervision. My situation was due to being out of shape and wearing the wrong shoes. I would have felt terrible if the whole group had to stay with me. I still enjoyed it. Thank you.

    I guess I should have gone on a shorter hike as a new member of this group. Oh well, at least I got some good photos, I hope you agree. I just uploaded 33 of them. Hope you all enjoy them. If you have Instagram you can see more of my photos. My ID is mechengrdave Hope to see you there.

    Are there trash cans along the way to dispose of poo bags? I'm accustomed to country trails...places to bury it, etc.

    What is the estimated return time?

    I am not a fast walker. I can assume we will about 3mph but with group size there are certain to be several different speeds but no one will be left behind. I like to talk & walk
