Sun, Jan 14, 2018, 6:30am: Hike to Sandy Point
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:
Explore the beautiful southwest corner of St. Croix. The hike will be 4.5 miles total on flat terrain, mostly on roads, and with long distances on deep sand. We will discuss the natural, cultural, historical, and marine resources of the refuge. This is a memorial hike for Otto Tranberg. Ecologist Olasee Davis is our tour guide.
