Meeting Locations, as noted above, meet at the walk location. Reservations are not required.
All walks start at 8AM at the walk location. Walks end by 11AM, but you may leave early.
Walks will be held even if it is drizzling, but if there is a steady rain at 7AM and projected to
continue past 9AM, the walk is canceled.
Walks are approximately 2 miles on a generally even and basically dry surface.
Ticks are always a concern, tick gaiters, socks over pants, or high boots can work well.
Bring binoculars and dress for the weather, layers work very well.
