Sat, Nov 6th, 2021, 7:00 AM: St. George Hill 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: Drive about a half mile from the entrance to the Queen Louise home, heading to LaGrange. At the corner, make a right at the concrete columns. We will be parking across from the church.
The hike will start at the bottom of the hill, then we walk uphill on a paved road. We will get to the trail, that was recently cleared, and enjoy a great view from there. The trail is moderate, and we can't see much because of the growth. But we will come out on a ridge, with a view of west end, with south and north views. We will then take a dirt road downhill, and follow it until it connects to the paved road. We will end up where we started. Total time about 2 hours to 2.5 hours.
This hike is moderate. Long pants are recommended, and proper shoes are encouraged. Please make sure you have water.
