Four-legged furry family members are encouraged to join, but PAWS does request that all animal companions be on a leash at all times.

Before heading out on the hike, there will be a short registration period at the park, and all hikers will receive detailed directions, a map to the trailhead and a description of the hike.

There will also be a drawing for prizes donated by local businesses.

PAWS requests a $10 donation for adult hikers and a $5 donation for anyone younger than 18 years old. Cash or checks made out to “PAWS” only.

Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. A sturdy backpack is advisable, and be sure to bring at least two liters of water. The hike is approximately 2 miles round trip and should take less than three hours.

This hike will be led by Tom Garrison, a local hiking enthusiast and PAWS volunteer.
