Sat, December 8th, 2018, 6:30 am: Shoreline Hike Along South Shore
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 Junie's Bar and Restaurant at 6:30 am. We will start quite a distance from the finish so we'll have to leave cars in two places. You will have to walk through water, and climb over a cow pasture gate (there are cattle in the area). There is a pond toward the finish that has ducks and guniea fowl. We will be going from one fisherman camp to another.
This hike will take a minimum of 4 hrs over relatively flat terrain. Dress to walk through water, wear a hat, bring something to drink, and a snack would be a good idea. Hike leader - Cathy.
