Hike the West Woods
Sunday June 5th @ 2:00 PM
This 902 acre park has a bit of everything — a variety of different woods, hills, caves, etc. We will do Ansel’s Cave Trail of about 2 miles and end with Discovery Trail of about .5 miles. There is an observation deck at the end where we will check out the view. This hike will have a couple of steeper hills and some ungroomed trails (aka: not a bridle trail) so good footwear is encouraged.
