Saturday, July 24, 2021
Come join us this Saturday, July 24 for a walk around Lake Brandt. Meet at the circle drive at Burmill Park off Owls Roots at 8 a.m. If you are interested in the AT Pilgrimage, this is a great way to meet people who are interested in hiking and would be a good way to get your feet wet before you commit to signing up starting July 25. The hike is approximately 7 miles long and will take approximately 3 hours. No serious elevation. It is mainly flat. You do not need to be interested in the AT pilgrimage to join us. All are welcome! Bring plenty of water and snacks. There is a bathroom break halfway through. Contact Caroline Tisdale to sign up or respond on the pilgrimage Facebook page. Caroline's email is
Hope to see you there!
Several Hiking Opportunities
Hello fellow pilgrims! We wanted to make you aware of some upcoming hiking dates that you might be interested in. We will be holding AT practice hikes on August 21, September 18 and October 9. We are inviting ANYONE who is interested in hiking to join us on these hikes. Locations and mileage are still being worked out, but you can plan to make a day of it if you would like to walk with us. These hikes will be required if you plan on participating in the AT pilgrimage. However, we are welcoming anyone interested in hiking or pilgrimage to join us. More details will be forthcoming. For now, we just wanted to give you an opportunity to get these dates on your busy schedules. Hope to see you on the trail!
