Thurs Feb 29, Leap Day Winter Hike – Herrick Lake 

What will YOU do with your extra day this year??

Whether you Leap thru the woods, or just hike it, come on out and stretch those legs at Herrick Lake. Enter Herrick at the North parking lot off Butterfield Rd. and immediately turn left in the parking lot.  Meet at 10:30am at the trail head near the boat rentals & bathrooms, next to parking lot. Hike a 2-3 mile loop, then optional nearby lunch after.  I have a few ideas for lunch, but let’s plan that on the day of. As with many outdoor activities, this will be weather dependent, so signing up on MeetUp will help us communicate with you on the day of and share trail conditions, etc.  - Dawn
