Hello Hikers and Traildogs! Join us for a quiet hike along the Huron River at Proud Lake. This is an early morning hike, so arrive at 8:00 for introductions. Social distancing and mask wearing, etc. is the new order and it's important we all stay safe if we are to hike together. For safety reasons, we're a small group, max 8. We will hike for about 90 minutes, 3-4 miles, maintaining a 6-feet distance between us. Well-behaved pups you've trained to "heel" are welcome! If you are experiencing any covid-like symptoms or if you've been around anyone with symptoms or a diagnosis, stay home. If you're feeling well, bring a mask that is comfortable for you. Masks make a hike a lot hotter, so dress light. Please only commit to this if you plan to be there. We wait for each person to arrive. If you end up having to cancel your RSVP due to illness, please please mark it ON THIS SITE well before the hike begins. Since we are a small group, a no-show without communication is a big bummer and will result in being blocked. Also, if you need to change your yes RSVP, do so at least two days before so someone who wants to come can take your precious spot. : ) Your Recreation Passport will get you in the park. If you don’t have one, the Campground office (2700 Glengarry, 3 miles down the road from our meeting place) $16 cash or CC. Rangers rarely bust anyone. HOW TO GET TO PROUD LAKE: From I-96, exit at Wixom Road (#159). Drive north on Wixom Road and follow the signs to the Proud Lake Recreation area. Wixom Road appears to end at a "T" intersection / stop light about 4.5 miles north of I-96; turn left here to continue on Wixom Road (approx 2 more miles around the bend). Turn right when you get to the park entrance, just before the big sign. Go past the park headquarters house, and you will come to the main parking lot, on the left. Look for pups! As always, water, poop bags, harnesses please, bug spray, and your openness to meet and converse with other great people. We are a small, welcoming group. Ruby and I look forward to our hike!
