How to find us

We will be hanging by the picnic tables on the right hand side of the parking lot.


My goodness, is it time for one of our most popular and beloved events? Indeed it is and it's number 6. If the truth be told, we really gather to enjoy sweets, hot chocolate, and our friends, and hike if we must...

First order of business is to gather to enjoy hot chocolate, and hot tea (compliments of your organizers) and all the yummy treats we bring to share which can be either homemade or from your favorite bakery and a zip-lock to take home some extras. You will also need a mug, but if you forget, I'm sure we will have some there.

Disclaimer: Expect to play some "get to know" you games while munching which you don't want to miss! Maybe a prize for the winner.

By eating and sipping first everyone gets to chat, then we burn off the calories on the guide-led hike of your choice: Company Mill ( 5.9 miles) or the Loblolly Trail to the Bike & Bridle Trail, then back by the lake (4.2 miles).
