Sat, Dec 9, 2017, 7:00 am: Caledonia Waterfall Hike
General info for all hikes and walks: Hikes and walks are $5 for members, and $10 for non-members (become a member). Unless otherwise noted, the pace for hikes is moderate, lasting 3-5 hours, covering 3-5 miles, the terrain is hilly, footing is sometimes uneven, and we follow trails and possibly paved or dirt roads . Walks are easier and shorter than hikes, and usually follow paved or dirt roads, no trails. The guide may periodically stop and talk along the way. Bring sturdy, comfortable walking or hiking shoes, water, snack, bug spray, rain poncho, and camera. Shorts or long pants are OK. For day hikes, bring a hat and sun block. For night hikes, bring a small flashlight. There are usually about 20 people. We depart about 30 minutes after the posted start time. For some hikes, we will meet at the indicated location, then drive a short distance to the hike location.
Specific info for this hike: This is a moderate to difficult hike. The hike time to the waterfall will be about 1 hour, and the total hike time will be about 2-1/2 hours. Hopefully there will be water running running so we can enjoy the falls, and if so, we'll walk in water that is knee-deep in places. Otherwise it will be a hike through a damp stream bed. There are some ruins that were exposed from the hurricanes that will be accessible. Plan to crawl over and under trees, and bushes. Wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Long pants are recommended, and a walking stick if you need one.
Meet at 7:00am at the beach-front parking lot just north of Fort Frederick.
