The 16th Annual Wildwood Cabin Fever Hike is scheduled for Saturday, February 23rd, 2019.
This year’s hike offers two standard options for your hiking pleasure: a nine (9) mile round trip hike from the Al Foster Memorial Trailhead to Castlewood Park and back; or a six (6) miles round trip trek from the Al Foster Memorial Trailhead to the top of the Rock Hollow Trail and back.
These two (2) hikes are favorites and always provide a quiet and relaxing experience! Adventurous hikers can choose a six (6) mile round trip hike from the Al Foster Memorial Trailhead to the top of the Bluff View Trail and back !! The Bluff View Trail is the latest addition to Wildwood’s Trail System and it does not disappoint !! This trail is a little more challenging offering five (5) miles of wooded, single track, natural surface trail with a couple of hills. If you are up to the challenge, the view at the three (3) mile point is worth the effort of the hike!! So make sure you bring a camera !!
The Cabin Fever Hike has a rolling start beginning at 8:15 a.m. through 9:00 a.m., with check-in beginning at 8:15 a.m. The start and finish of the hike is at the Al Foster Memorial Trailhead, 225 Grand Avenue, Wildwood, MO. 63038 (right by the WF&P Railroad). Of course, you can hike any distance you wish and you will be rewarded with beautiful scenery and solitude like no other!!
The check-in will have coffee, juice, water, assorted breakfast food, and the usual conversation and camaraderie!!! So mark the date on your calendar and plan on getting some fresh air !!
