of 600 feet. The trails through the Loll Wildwood Natural Area are
rough and may be muddy if we have rain.
We’ll meet behind the bleachers, near the food carts, at Wilson High School (SW Sunset Blvd. and SW Capitol Highway) and be ready to carpool by 9:00 am. Well-behaved dogs are allowed. They must be on leash. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails walks.
