NOTE: ALL HIKES WILL BEGIN AT THE TRAIL HEADS FOR THE REST OF THE SUMMER. We will NOT meet in Mayfield Hardware's parking lot until further notice.
It’s time to beat the heat on our weekly hikes! Starting this Wednesday thru the end of August we will stay fairly local and meet at the trail head in order to try to beat the heat.
Our hike on July 4th will be at Hard Labor Creek State Park on the Green Mountain Bike Trail. This is the easiest of the mountain bike trails.
We will meet at the trailhead at 8:00 am. The trail head is located west of the golf course on Knox Chapel Road.
