Our "Explorer Dogs" are an elite group of mud-loving dogs and people who don't mind trudging through brush, getting muddy, and often wandering aimlessly in the woods only to admit that we're lost. We sometimes have to turn back and hope to find our way home before dark.
NO BEGINNERS OR FIRST TIMERS.
You must have done at least one 5 mile off trail hike before, or your rsvp will be refused. We all want to know who we're hiking with on the Explorer Dog excursions. There is no trail in spots here. Expect dirty dogs and muddy boots...and burrs.
Exact location will be sent to attendees. This will be about 5 miles, much of it off trail through the brush. Bring a sense of humor and don't be in a hurry. If you're a power hiker, stay home...we don't do that. Allow 3 hours.
Wear clothes that repel burrs.
Hiking boots required for safety...they need to be waterproof.
If you use hiking poles, bring them.
Bring water for dogs.
If you don't know what else you need, you aren't ready for this one.
