Saturday, May 18th 2019, 6:00 pm: Moonlight Hike to Wells Bay

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: Meeting at 6:00pm behind the Carambola Beach Resort guard gate. The terrain is easy to moderate. Bring a flashlight, plenty of water and a snack. Short or long pants are welcome. Bring a swimsuit if you want to swim at the pools at Wells Bay (which is east of Wills bay if you've been there). Discussion will be on the natural, cultural, historical and marine resources of the area. The hike is about 5.4 miles roundtrip and about 3 hours at a moderate pace.  Olasee Davis, our ecologist is the tour guide.

Driving directions: Go to the far west end of Route 80 (North Shore Rd.), or to the far north end of Route 69 (River Rd.). From that intersection, go west along the north shore to the Carambola Beach Resort. Turn left just before the guard gate, and park in the farthest parking area from the gate.
