Iroquois Park "Slow & Social" Paved Road Hike
General description: Easy 5.25 +/- mile walk on paved park road to the overlooks at top of the park, then back to the parking lot. We'll try to hike the pace of the slowest hiker and stop often for regrouping. There is a 300 foot climb over the distance of one mile. Sometimes, for variety, we do 3/4 mile hilly woods (horse trail) at beginning. * Difficulty level: Easy / Social * Distance and Pace:[masked] miles / Slow Pace * Route: From Parking Lot up hill to Three Overlooks * Regrouping: Regrouping often / Waiting for people to all catch up before moving on. * Special Populations: Dogs on Leash / Children Allowed * What to Bring: Water / Camera * Special considerations: Might get dark on us... Lights not needed, but may bring if wanted. Weather gear. * Weather: We go rain or shine, cold and snow! (heat too) Please be able to dress for inclement weather hiking. I will try to keep postings when strong system coming through. * Due to occurring events, I must state that rudeness and arguing with a guest host will NOT be tolerated. I chose my fill-ins based on their knowledge of weather patterns and understanding of safety of the group. Whomever I chose can turn the group around or cancel at their call.

What we're about

The Louisville Hiking Meetup's mission is to create a vibrant, fun, and friendly community of local hikers, backpackers, and campers. We are a group of common adventures working cooperatively for common goals.

Everyone from beginners to experts are welcome; the only requirement for membership is a love and respect for the outdoors. Every week there's at least one event, and most weeks there are several. Locations range from the local Louisville area to as far away as Georgia and Wyoming!

In addition to hitting the trail, we have social events, equipment meetups, and volunteer adventures. Expect to have a lot of fun and meet a lot of new people!

Please be sure to read the "About (" and the "Code of Conduct" ( section for more important information about the group:
