Sunday, February 4th, 2024, 7:00am: Hike to Southgate Coastal Reserve
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: We will meet at 7:00am to hike through the Southgate Nature Preserve. This is a short hike, and if you have binoculars bring them,as you may be able to see some ducks or other birds. This hike will be lead by Mclean.
Place to meet: on the left side of the road just past the old Cheeseburgers in America's Paradise, and before Chenay Bay entrance. No need to make reservations.
