We will start at the Welcome Center and hike to the Lake Trail then the Orange Trail and end with the Red Trail and back to Welcome Center. The total is about 10 miles but you have the option of hiking just to the Lake Trail and back (3.5 miles); adding the Orange Trail (5.8 miles) or completing the Red Trail also for a little over 10 miles.
We will hike at a Moderate Pace and stay together as a group. Those turning back will check in first with leader so all can be accounted for. I prefer partner hiking for those finishing early- this has been successful in the past.
This is a good hike for those unsure of their hiking ability for the hilly terrain of JMF. We will not be in a rush; enjoying the scenery and being supportive to new members.
Bring water and snacks.
Dress in wicking layers.
I am looking forward to seeing some new and familiar faces on the trail!
