Hans Steuch will lead the walk on Saturday, Sept. 14. It will be a loop through Maricara Park, Marshall Park, Tryon Creek State Park and the surrounding neighborhoods, including parts of SW Trails 5 and 6 and some new areas. It will be about 5.5 miles with about 800 feet elevation gain. It will be mostly on trails with a few difficult and steep sections, including some stream crossings.
Bring a snack and water and dress for the weather. A hiking pole is suggested for the steep sections and stream crossings. Well-behaved dogs are allowed. They must be on leash. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SW Trails hikes. Meet behind the bleachers at Wilson High School and be ready to leave at 9:00 am (Sunset Blvd. and Capitol Highway). We will then car pool a short distance to the start of the walk.
