Hikers Wanted on Sat. March 25, 2017. Open to all CCPA Members, family and friends. Join Mark and Janet Snyder at the parking lot prior to entering the gate on the loop rd., arrive at 9:30a as we hope to get started at 9:45a. The hike is rated moderate, if your a hiker, difficult if you don't get out as much as you would like. The total mileage is about 4.4 miles at a leisurely pace and should be back at the parking lot by 2:20pm
Plans are to visit Anthony, Gregory and Olivier home sites by using the Rich Mountain Loop Trail. Bring a lunch, water and a story to tell, we will be eating at the John Oliver Cabin, we encourage a story about the family who lived at the site we visit.
The story need not be the gospel truth, for many family stories get shaped by the story teller, regardless please share those tales.
Wear good shoes/hiking boots, bring water, food, snacks, wear layers, and don't forget rain gear.
