DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
Please join me for a 5-mile hike on the shaded, paved trails from Delcastle Recreation area to the Weatherill path and back. The path is paved and wide enough to walk comfortably and you can wear sneakers or comfortable walking shoes. There are, however, some serious hills! Bring water as it is likely to be hot. Meet and be ready to hike at 9:00 a.m. There are no park fees and plenty of parking is available.
