We will begin the hike promptly at 9:00am. We will start the hike at the farthest entrance into the woods (following the black-top trail as far as it goes and to the right. That is where you will find the entrance I am talking about). We will be on dirt and wood chip rails for most of the time. We may find a little bit of mud and will be going up and down hills to enjoy this fun hiking spot! I am expecting to hike for about 7-8 miles, maybe more if there is a desire (which may or may not include heading over to Settlers Park).
I will be going approximately 4 mph, a brisk pace.
A good attitude
Decent walking shoes, hiking shoes
In Spring and Summer... hat, just in case ticks are an issue
Dress in comfortable layers and according to weather forecast
Drinking water and snacks
On icy winter days, I recommend YakTrax or something similar
