On this month’s 6-mile 900ft elevation hike we will highlight hiking on the newly completed Red Electric bridge on SW Capital Hwy across from Verde Cocina Hillsdale. From there we will walk on west on the alignment of the Red Electric trail and neighborhood streets making our way to SW Trail #7 on SW 45th then down the path to SW Trail #1 and head back east through Albert Kelly Park. Last month SWTrails completed a significant rebuild of the steps on SW Twombly Ave (4400 block) and we will zig and zag our way up there to walk these amazing newly completed steps.  Our return to Ida Wells will then be along SW 19th Dr and SW Sunset to our start just behind the food carts at Ida Wells HS across from the bleacher. This hike is 6 miles long and has 900 feet of elevation change and we will walk at about 2.5 mph. This is our 2nd Saturday series of Hikes which are a little longer and faster paced than the 3rd Saturday series of walks. Dave Manville will lead this hike.

Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses, and rain gear as appropriate. Dress and prepare for the weather on hike day. Children and well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SWTrails walks and hikes. If you need to leave the hike early let a hike leader know. We try to find a restroom along the way, but it’s not always possible to do so.

Looking forward to seeing you there with us.

Dave Manville
