“born to be wild”
Our hikes are generally about 3 miles in length, with no more than about 300 feet of climb and the hike is usually over in less than 3 hours. We go at a nice leisurely pace and make enough stops so that we don’t wear anybody out.
We meet every Friday at the BiLo Assembly Area in the parking lot at Forest Gate along the curb overlooking the Pizza Hut. In June we have 9:00 AM gathering for 9:15 AM departure. Hikes in July, August and first week in September will gather at 8:15 AM for 8:30 AM departure. On September 12 we return to 9:00 AM gathering for 9:15 AM departure. HIKE CHANGE AT LEADERS DISCRETION.
We send out an email every Thursday to members of this group with a Friday weather forecast and a description of the hike.
Wear hiking boots and bring water and lunch or snack, A good sense of humor also helps. And – Have Big Fun!
