November Fall Hike: National Take A Hike Day
November 17th is National Hiking Day! Let's get it in and celebrate with GirlTrek!
• What we'll do
Join us for a morning hike! We will do the Creek Loop which is 2.8 miles that combines the High Ridge Trail and Shoreline Trail at Bledsoe. (Weather permitting) This is an intermediate course that is about 70 to 90 minutes.
• How to prepare
It is Fall time, so it will be a little cooler, wear some workout or yoga "long" pants and long-sleeved top would be good. Depending on coolness of Fall...a light jacket. Suggestion: hiking boots over gym shoes. Target and Wal-Mart have some very inexpensive and "nice" ones if don't want to go to Academy Sports or Dick's Sporting Goods. Wear good socks and a sports bra. Since we are hiking in a group, I will have a backpack of essentials like first aid kit, flashlight, etc. but everyone is welcome to bring a water bottle and your own backpack/camel pak.
• Important to know
We will meet in the parking lot right in front of the Visitor Center/Park Office (see map link) as that is the entrance to the hiking trails as well. We will start our hike on time.
