Quarterly Hiking Schedule, April 22nd through July 29, 2017
Meet – The group meets before 8 am in the Douglas County Courthouse parking lot behind the Douglas County Library. In general, most hikes take an hour to an hour and a half driving time each direction.
Bring – Each person should bring water, lunch, layers of clothing including raingear and be prepared to share carpool expenses. Driving time to trailheads and hike length are estimates only. Call the hike coordinator for more information if you have questions. The driver decides on carpool expenses taking into consideration distance traveled, amount of gas consumed, number of passengers and road conditions.
Be Prepared – Wear seasoned boots. Stay with the group and on the trail. If lost, stay put. Each hiker hikes at his or her own risk and is responsible for his or her own health, safety and welfare. Hiking destinations may be changed due to weather conditions or other concerns.
Enjoy the hike!
