Join us for a hike at Greensfelder County Park. Take I44 to the Allenton Rd – Six Flags exit. Turn right and stay on Allenton Rd for approximately 2 miles (do not go into Six Flags). At the intersection of Hencken and Allenton on the right there will be a parking area for the Eagle Valley Trailhead. This trail is 3.6 miles. The Greensfelder Park is very hilly. Hiking shoes and polls are recommended.
What to bring: - WATER – THIS IS IMPORTANT ALL YEAR LONG AND ESPECIALLY IN THE WARMER MONTHS. WE WILL USUALLY BE OUT FOR AT LEAST 1 ½ HOURS AND THAT IS TOO LONG TO GO WITHOUT REPLENISHING THE LIQUIDS THAT YOU WILL BE BURNING WHILE WALKING. – I AVOID DRINKING CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES BEFORE WALKING. . THE ARE A LOT OF GOOD ARTICLES ABOUT “effects of caffeine and exercise” ON THE INTERNET OR ASK YOU DOCTOR.
- During hot weather wear clothing that is light weight, light colored and loose fitting and drink plenty of water. Wear a hat.
- I recommend broken in hiking shoes over Tennis shoes. A lot of the trails are over loose gravel and dirt and the treads on the hiking boots work much better.
- Snacks – EAT LIGHTLY BEFORE THE WALK AND BRING A POWER BAR OR SNACK TO MUNCH ON DURING THE WALK.
After the hike we will meet at a local restaurant for conversation and food.
