Save The Date: Kakeout Reservoir Hike

Save the date - Sunday April 26, 2009 - for a hike around the Kakeout Reservoir [i.e., the Fayson Lakes reservoir] trail.

It's a terrific hike and offers you a view of the Kakeout reservoir and dam unlike what you see driving along Fayson Lakes Road. As gorgeous as the drive is, this hike will transport you to a different world.

Smoke Rise's Ken Bitz is organizing this outing. In fact, you will see the official notice appearing in the April 1 issue of The Smoke Rise Newsletter.

Ken describes the hike as follows:

This hike is rated easy and is 4 miles on the blue trail around the Kakeout reservoir in Fayson Lakes. The vistas are beautiful for a lovely spring day.

The plan is to meet at the Smoke Rise Inn parking lot at 1 PM and then car pool over to the trail head on Fayson Lakes Road since parking there is limited.

Lisa discovered a site from which the map above comes. It details the Kakeout Reservoir hike, with lots of details [topography, map, description, etc. all along the left hand side of the image].

We took the hike right before Thanksgiving with our kids and had a blast! I'll try to post that summary with photos before April 26th.

For information on these hikes as well as information on the Smoke Rise trails, please contact Ken Bitz at

I hope you'll join us for this terrific hike. See you then!
