    One of the most enjoyable hike's to date for me. The day was over cast, good temperature, and the fellowship was great. In the end we hiked 4.5 miles. Samart took some great photos. Check them out.

    Some hikers have ask if additional miles can be added to this hike. We will complete the 3 mile beginners hike 1st, then if hikers want to go some additional miles Michael said that he would arrange that. So all hikers can enjoy.

    i know that this is supposed to be an easy 3 mile hike but... if an additional leg/trail is tacked on, i'd be up for it!
