DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
Nothing like a long, brisk, not-so-easy hike around a lake to get ready for the End-to-End! This is a 23 mile hike around Blue Marsh Lake. Be ready for rocky trails and hills. Bring water, lunch and snacks. The 58-mile drive (1.5 hours) includes tolls. Meet at Brandywine Town Center Park & Ride ready to depart at 7:30. Bad weather moves this to a local hike at BCSP. Please contact the leader if you plan to meet at the trail head.
