Go take a hike!

We hike tomorrow, rain or shine! Meet at 10:00am at the Lick Creek pedestrian bridge, which is located at the east end of Old Forest Lane, adjacent to the Rainbow Lake parking lot.

Don't let the heat keep you from attending our summer hikes; just bring a water bottle and remind yourself that it's always at least 10 degrees cooler in the Old Forest. Also keep in mind that lightweight long pants will protect your tender flesh from close encounters with poison ivy and mosquitoes.

If you can't make it tomorrow, we have another hike coming up on Saturday, June 28, at 10:00am. If you want to plan farther ahead, you can always count on a free guided Old Forest hike on the second Saturday of every month at 10:00am.

We are adding extra hikes as we're able, but the Second Saturday Old Forest hikes are a long-standing tradition begun by Don Richardson of the local Sierra Club group. Don is taking a break for the summer but will start leading hikes again in the fall. I'm happy to have a good excuse to visit the Old Forest more often!

Also, I keep forgetting to mention that CPOP is on Facebook. Become a fan and you'll get automatic updates on our hikes and other events. You know, if you wanna...
