                             Map to parking lot at trailhead

    Meet at the Spears Street parking lot, which is at the far north end of Spears, past the residential area.  The street is a dead end, and the parking lot is off to the right. 

    The group will head up the short connector trail from the Spears parking lot to join up with the 'blue loop' that goes around the park.  This will consist of Hill City, Gig City, and the Double J trails.  We'll then detour off the blue loop trails to walk a portion of the Cherokee trail so that we can take advantage of the one-of-a-kind view of the Scenic City from the overlook platform.  Most of the trail is on rolling dirt single-track type trails, but a portion of the hike is also on paved double-track, and there will be some short, moderately steep sections.

    Whether you've hiked Stringer's Ridge before and love it so much that you want to go back, or you've never been and want to check it out ... it's worth the experience.

                                    Please arrive early or on time 

                                   so as not to hold up the group

    The new event has been posted for Stringer's Ridge that will take place on Sunday April 6th at 2pm due to this weekend's event having to be cancelled because of weather. If you are interested in attending on that date, you will need to rsvp for the new event date. I have not "announced" the event with an email to all members of CHM, as I am trying to allow you to get the first chance to sign up for it since you were already signed up for the original event. I will be sending out a group wide email Saturday, though, so if you're interested in attending, be sure to sign up quickly (but only if you are sure that you will be able to go). Please do not rsvp just to hold a spot. That is inconsiderate of others.

    I've emailed everyone, but just a reminder - tomorrow's hike has been canceled due to weather and trail conditions. Stay tuned for reschedule....
