DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
This is an out and back hike with a little extra, in a different direction that is on asphalt but mostly gravel trails through woods following the Brandywine River. You will be walking along the dividing line between ancient ocean sediments and the remains of long eroded volcanic islands that used to exist off the coast 400 million years ago. Trekking poles are advisable due to some rocky trail conditions. The trail is mostly level with some easy hills.
This hike is limited to 10 people and you must RSVP the leader via email to join no earlier than 6 days before the hike. Other respondents beyond the first 9 will be added to a second hike and notified if there has been a cancellation in the first hike. Please provide the leader with your phone number for notification in case of cancellations.
The second hike covering the same route will commence at 10:30 composed of those waitlisted from the first hike. It is important that those accepted to the first hike arrive for their meet-up at 9:45 to depart at 10:00am. Members informed they are included in the second hike are to arrive at 10:15 for meet-up and departure at 10:30am. Anyone needing to cancel from either hike should contact the Leader by 8:00am the day of the hike, who may then contact others waitlisted who didn’t get into either hike.
We will follow state of Delaware Covid 19 rules: stay 6 feet apart if possible, and wearing a face mask is required when closer. You must have your face mask readily available on your person while on the hike. Also, please bring your own pen to sign in.
