Sun, October 13th, 2019, 5:30 pm: Recovery Hill Moonlight 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: The St. Croix Hiking Association scheduled a moonlight hike to Recovery Hill. It is a moderate to easy steep, dirt trail hike of a dry forest ecosystem. The right-most fork of Recovery Hill goes to the top of Jacobsberg Ridge, 845 feet above sea level, with a great view of the south shore, Christiansted Harbor, and Buck Island. The nature, culture, and history of the site will be discussed. Total miles is 2.5. Bring flashlight, snack, & water! Olasee Davis is our tour guide.

The meeting place is at the large, green tank across from the stoplight at the Christiansted bypass for 5:30pm.  For more information, call Cathy at 772-2073, or
