Link to meeting spot: https://goo.gl/maps/4pN5AXNGuTXHPc4s7 *** MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR THE HIKE *** I believe that maintaining active and outdoor social events during this time is very important but we are clearly in a crises. I want to do my best not to contribute to the crises and therefore am making masks mandatory for the hike. THE PLAN: We are once again going to intrude upon the horses and hike in their territory because the horse always seem to get the best trails (and they don't even appreciate this fact). The hike will done at a moderately fast pace (~3ish mph) with multiple small stops along the way. NOTES: - It is hunting season, please wear something bright - Friendly furry things on leashes are allowed - Bathrooms might be available along the hike but I am not sure...* THE MEETING SPOT: We will be at the very end of the parking lot. There are two entrances to the parking lot: Gale Road and Williams Lake Road. But, the Gale Road entrance is often closed and the Williams Lake entrance can be a bit tricky to navigate. I recommend that you GIVE YOURSELF A FEW EXTRA MINUTES to find the spot. Pleasantly note that we are not delaying the hike because you are lost. COSTS: This is a state rec area so you need a Michigan Recreation Pass. If you do not have one, then it is likely a ranger will put a $17 ticket on your car -- paying that gets you the Rec Pass.
