DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
This hike involves rarely known conserved areas that the club never uses. They are near the Middle Branch of the White Clay Creek about 5 miles north of the White Clay Creek State Preserve. Expect hills, field trails, dirt roads, woods trails, and a couple of small wet crossings. There’s about 10% pavement necessary on usually quiet Landenberg roads to get between sections. Bring water & snack. [This event is starting from a different location than the October hikes met at! See new location below.]
