HK2003-HIKE & PICNIC ANNIE LOUISE WILKERSON NATURE PRESERVE PARK


HIKE & PICNIC

ANNIE LOUISE WILKERSON NATURE PRESERVE PARK

Sunday, November 22    #HK2003



HIKE
Let’sexplore this 158-acre park as we hike through meadows and woods and changing colors.  The hike will take about an hour to an hour and a half.  The start of the hike is easy, as we will walk through a wide grassy path (see photo above).  Then we’ll enter the woods where the trail narrows.  After that, we’ll cross a cool bridge that goes over a stream. This leads us to the mountains to sea trail that follows a creek and leads to a lake.

PICNIC
I reservedthe picnic shelter from 1:30 until 3:30 for us, so after our hike, we’ll have lunch at the picnic shelter.  Everyone brings their own packed lunch.  If you prefer not to hike due to physical limitations (or any reason), feel free to just join us at 1:30 for our picnic.  You can bring cards or board games if you’d like.

WHERE TO PARK
Whenyou enter the park, drive as far as you can into the park, and park your car.  If you park in the first parking lot on the left (which is called VEHICLE & BUS PARKING), it will be a 5 to 10-minute walk to where we meet.  Pass the first parking lot and park at the PARK OFFICE, if you can.  However, the parking lot by the park office is small and often full, in which case, you’ll have to park in the visitor parking lot.

WHERE TO MEET
Meet by the picnic shelter.





COVID–SAFE
Wewill keep distance from each other during the entire event to keep safe from the coronavirus.  Please be mindful to keep at least six feet apart from anyone else at all times, during the hike and during the picnic.  Masks are optional since we are outside, but distance is a must.
