Smoke Rise Days 2010 are fast approaching! I have important information to share with you... a Hike on Saturday, July 3rd.
That's right. We are referring to it as the New Pond Trail Hike.
Will you be there?
Here are the nitty gritty details.
Date: Saturday, July 3rd
Time: 9:00 am [please be on time]
Meeting Place: Beechwood Lane cul de sac
More specifically, walk or park at the end of Beechwood Lane [west of Red Oak Lane] and you will see the trail head - located between lots #20 and #21.
As described in The New Pond Trail, we will take Old Mountain Road trail South to New Pond. From there we will take the newly reopened New Pond access to West Shore Drive, and then retrace our steps back to Beechwood Lane through the woods.
Approximate time for the hike: ~ 3 hours
[If you'd prefer a half hike, consider parking a car by the New Pond trail head on West Shore Drive.]
Given that it will be warm, I strongly encourage each hiker to have his/her own water. If you have any allergies, please be prepared.
Children and dogs welcome. Please note that Mountain Road has significant ups and downs.
Otherwise, wear light colored clothing and good hiking shoes, have a walking stick and bring a camera.
See you then!
