Saturday, March 16th, 2024, 7:30am: Estate Adventure Trail

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: The entrance to the Estate Adventure Trail is across the road from the Agricultural Fairgrounds. There is now a sign marking the entrance, just by the bridge with the orange barriers. Drive onto the dirt road and park. We will be walking in the gut, so expect to be going over and under trees, walking over stones, etc. Please wear appropriate shoes. The trail goes almost to the entrance of Public Safety. There are benches and steps along the way, as well as many large trees to see.

The hike leader is Stephen Cohen.


Time to meet: 7:30am
