Saturday, October 8, 2022, 3:30 pm: Top of the Beast to Bodkin Mill

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.

Please bring small bills to pay.

The hike on the calendar was changed because the area would be overgrown, and need bush cutting. So the hike has been changed...

Specific info for this hike: We will meet and park at the top of the Beast for 3PM, the hike will start at 3:30 pm. We will walk Scenic road to the turn off to Bodkin Mill. The road will be dirt, mud holes, some pavement, and some hill. Rest at Bodkin Mill, them come back the same way. The road is clear and the hike should be moderate..
