Hike to the Glenrose Unit of the Dishman Hills Conservation Area including new 1-mile loop.
Wednesday, July 31st 6-8:30 pm
This hike goes to the Glenrose Unit of the Dishman Hills. It is approximately 6.2 miles round trip over sometimes steep terrain and moderate difficulty. On the route back there will be significant uphills. The trail starts at the end of Thierman Road in the Glenrose area. From here, we will travel the new "family loop" for .8 mile. This is a just finished section of nearly flat trail with beautiful views of the south hill. Then we will rejoin the regular trail to either the meadow, or depending on group interest, all the way to the "Cliffs" at about 3 miles. The return trip will be shorter as we will bypass the "family loop". Because of the distance and elevation changes, the hike is fairly strenuous and moderately difficult. Pace will be faster and meant for the regular hiker. There will be conservation information stops.
Dogs are allowed on leash. No parking pass required. Meet in parking lot at the end of Thierman Rd.
Bring hiking poles, snacks, water and dress for the weather. Because of the advanced terrain, boots and traction devices would be most appropriate footwear.
Event is free, but registration is requested.
Note: trip leaders will decide IF cancellation is warranted and notify registrants of cancellation by 6 am the previous morning to the hike. So, check your emails the day prior to the scheduled hike.
