NOTICE: THE TIME FOR THIS MEETUP HAS CHANGED. THE NEW MEETUP TIME IS NOON.
Let's go for a dayhike on Martin Luther King Day. We'll travel about an hour south for a hike at the Jones-Keeney Wildlife Management area near Dawson Springs, Kentucky. There we'll search for a waterfall beneath a surprisingly large rock shelter, and visit for a place that the locals call Buttercup Hill where we we'll find a tiny natural bridge with a waterfall behind it.

The total mileage will be about 5 miles total, so you'll want to go for the views and the social contact rather than the miles. This hike is rated (E) for Easy. There is one hand-over-hand steep decent on dirt, rocks and tree roots to get to the rock shelter. Dress appropriately for the weather. I can't tell you what that will be because it's hard telling this time of year. We'll meet at Ruler Foods in Henderson and carpool from there. Let me know in advance if you can drive or is you want to ride with somebody

We're getting an early start so that we can finish this hike and go to lunch afterwards, likely in Dawson Springs. Winter weather may impact this trip, but unless there is tons of snow falling, freezing rain, or expected temps in the low teens, this trip will likely be a go no matter what. A little light snow or misty showers are not going to cancel this trip, but just to error on the side of caution, go to the comments section of this Meetup the day before and see if this is a go or a no go. We should easily be back at our vehicles in Henderson by 4 p.m.

Children: No.
Pets: Ask the organizer for permission. Must be well-behaved with fixed leash.
All times are Central Standard (Evansville) Time.
