    A great hike that made the drive well worth the while. And very nice people to hike with, even though I didn't really get to talk to all of you! Thanks to the organizers!

    This was a great day for a hike. The corny jokes were an added bonus. The scenery was beautiful. Thanks to everyone who made it out, and for sharing your wonderful pictures.

    How is the parking there, with all the snow just curious

    December 31, 2013

    • Kathie Q

      I used to snowshoe here. They have a medium sized private parking lot. I'm guessing 25 or so cars can park there. The preserve used to be a home with some acreage it's in a residential area off of a two lane road.

      December 31, 2013

    • Kathie Q

      They kept it pretty well plowed last year

    Thx for info

    Stillman Nature Center called. Here are some details.

    - Hike lasts 1-1.5 hrs at moderate speed.
    - It's a GO - whatever the temperature.
    - Sometimes people will bring snow shoes and those people can go longer (and off trail).
    - Dress in layers, boots, gloves, hat, scarf, etc.

    I suggest bringing hot cocoa :)

    So hike is 10:00 am - 11:30 am-ish. :)

      Bring a camera to take pics. FYI this event is open to the public, so when introducing yourself to another person and you mention MEETUP or BUCKET LIST and they look at you as if you are on a "day pass", they are *probably* not a MU member. :)
