Update!! Hiking boots are mandatory for this hike. Wet rocks, leaves, etc., can make for slippery footing and PROPERLY FITTING hiking boots are a must. Your boots are like the tires on your car, the most important part. Your socks are very important too, cotton is not a great idea, and blisters can make you and everyone else miserable.
This is going to be a great hike!! We will start at Lake Skannatati, near the Kanawauke Circle on Seven Lakes Drive. We will meet in the parking lot, be sure you get the right lake!! For the promised map:
We will do a 5 mile hike +/- depending on the weather, the trail and the group. It should be an easy intermediate hike, no serious stuff but we are approaching from a different location, the group will need to stay somewhat together as it is a large group. As always bring your sense of adventure for unknown trails!!!
We WILL visit the famous Bowling Rocks that is always just beyond our grasp. It is a very cool place. Bring lunch, snacks, water, and all the good hiking stuff including hiking boots (mandatory), bug stuff (ticks...), first aid, a flashlight, poles, hat, sunglasses, bubbles, and (HINT) zip off hiking pants are wonderful things if you are building your hiking wardrobe.
$2 Meetup fee. Light rain won't stop us but heavy stuff will, stay tuned if the forecast is bad. I will update Friday night and Saturday morning if necessary. If I don't have your cell please send it to me and I will return with mine. You never know.....
RAIN DATE will be Sunday the 18th. ALL HIKES ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Cheers!!!
