We have made some changes and settled on a trail called the Fern Loop, along the Pere Marquette river, west of the city of Baldwin, in Lake county. This will be the Groups Inaugural HIKE and we are expecting a great turn out.
The Hike starts at 1pm on Saturday, 5/5/12, and will go until about 4pm. After the Hike there will be a nice Campfire and some nibbles and beverages for all. Also……everyone attending the Hike will get one of our color Maps of the area and trails we will be Hiking.
There is no charge for any of this, nor is there a need for reservations. Just show up at our meeting place and join us for a great Hike. The hike will be around 5 miles and half of it will be along the banks of the Pere Marquette river. The other half will be through various Fern landscaped. More then 11 different kinds of Ferns grow here. Thus the name of the trail. The Fern Loop.
So bring those ID books along and join us for our 1st Hike of the season for our new Group. You can download a Flyer with more details and a map to where we will be meeting here: FERN LOOP TRAIL HIKE
