We will hike the loop around the reservoir taking note of some of the flora and fauna, relatively flat trails with roots, stones, etc. creating some foot hazards.
Good walking shoes, ideally hiking footwear and long pants are highly recommended. Bring water for hydration. Hike will be slightly over 3 miles and 2 hours in duration. Meet up at 9:45 AM so we can start promptly at 10 AM.
