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 15-20 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 time is 7am, at the entrance road for Cheney Bay (on the left as you're headed east). (After Cheeseburgers in Paradise's restaurant.)
The terrain is easy to moderate along the beach. Bring water and a snack. Short or long pants are applicable. Bring a swimsuit if you wish to swim off the Coakley Bay Beach. The natural, historical, cultural, and marine resources of the area will be discussed by guide Steve Cohen. The hike is about 4 miles, and will take between 2.5 to 3 hours at a moderate pace.
