Sun, Feb 26, 2017, 2:30pm: Mount Victory 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: Meet at 2:30pm at the entrance to Mount Victory Camp.

The terrain for this hike is easy, with a moderate uphill section. The total distance is about 1.25 miles. We will hike a shorter section on a rain forest trail and then a larger loop through a former pasture which is now in the process of reforestation. Here we will see the ruins of the old Mount Victory Estate, including boiling house, great house, steam tower, and windmill. Our guide will be Carmen.
