3rd Saturday Walk
June 18th @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am be 15 minutes early
Name: Ashcreek Nature Area and Dickinson Park Loop
Leader: Dave Manville
Start Location: Smith School 8935 SW 52nd Ave in front of school entrance
Start Location Google Map Link: HERE
Start Time: 9 am (arrive 10-15 min. early so we can start promptly at 9am)
Distance: 3.2 miles
Elevation Change: 360 ft.
Pace and Terrain: Our 3rd Saturday Walks are a more casual length and pace (about 2 mile per hour for 3-4 miles) than the fast-paced 2nd Saturday Hikes. This walk will be on both quiet city streets and on trails and paths with uneven surfaces, a few steps, and the possibility of some slippery spots, roots, and short steep sections.
Participation Requirements: Fully COVID vaccinated (including Booster), have masks available as an option for when we gather in close proximity.
Bus Information: Bus 45, Stop ID 1963 going West, 1966 going East at Garden Home rd and SW 52nd. From the bus stop go South up hill on 52nd to Dolph jog left and right to SW 52nd and continue South to Smith School 1 block.
We will be exploring the Ashcreek Natural Area, Dickinson Park trails, and Brugger paths on this walk. We begin from the front of Smith School and head up 51st to Brugger and out west to 55th south to Dickinson Park down the trail at Alfred to 57th and back up SW Trail #5 in the open field where we did an Eagle Scout rehab project last fall and then on up through Ashcreek Nature Area and take the quiet streets back to Smith School.
Bring water and snacks and dress in layers for our spring to summer weather. Kids and well-behaved pets on leash are welcome, but no smoking for the health and consideration of others. We try and find a restroom on our walking route but many times nothing is available so prepare accordingly. You are welcome to join us for just a portion of the hike but let a hike leader or sweep person know when you are leaving the hike.
Looking forward to walking with you at this event.
