Sun, April 28, 2019, 6:30 am: Butler Bay Dry Stream 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 6:30am at the Fort Frederik beach parking area. We will then drive to the hike area. The trail was cleared a bit, but there will be a lot of going over, under and around trees and boulders. Long pants is recommended, as well as sturdy shoes, and your usual drink/snacks. The area is mostly shaded. If you have any allergies to the local jack spaniel - bring your meds, there will be some on the trail, hope we don't walk into them. Please bring small bills to pay.
