HIKING Wednesday Midweek Hiking -- for 8-10 miles on 07/06/2016 @ 9:00am-1:30pm -- We will hike up and back on part of the Mason Dixon Trail through this unusual forest area. Parking will be by the Susquehanna River and then hiking along Muddy Creek. The creek is far from muddy, as it’s quite clear and rushing. The river’s gorge is covered with huge native Rhododendrons. The gorgeous natural beauty will be worth the brief bit of challenging uphill at the beginning of the hike. (Coming down is easier!) There are several water crossings. The leader will wait and help as needed. Also, since all of it is up and back, hikers can stop anywhere along the way. The leader believes that this is the most special trail, within 1 hours’ drive of Newark, DE!
