Saturday, February 11th, 2023, 07:30am: Hike along Ha'Penny Beach (Manchenil 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: South shore road (Rt62), look for two pink columns with a short wall. Follow the road to the beach area and park. It will be an easy walk along the shoreline, should take about 2 hours. If you want to swim afterwards, bring your swimsuits. The beach sand is clear of seaweed, so it should be fun.
