OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY! Dog Hike at DON ROBINSON PARK

February 4 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm EST

ONE OF OUR FAVORITE HIKES! RATED DIFFICULT.

A rugged dirt trail, some steep hills. Some mud in rainy weather. After about 3 miles, we will hit the CANYON, crawl/slide down into it and walk up the middle. There will be creek crossings and some very narrow spots in the trail. Some burrs along the way. Some muddy butts possible.

WATERPROOF HIKING BOOTS ARE REQUIRED FOR SAFETY. There are shallow creeks to cross and mud. If there’s snow, you absolutely need YAKTRAX for traction.

HIKING POLES very strongly recommended. Some steep inclines and maybe a butt-slide spot here and there.

You & your dog are gonna get dirty…enjoy the slop! Do not sign up if you’re not comfortable with wading through creeks, crawling up & down rock bluffs, steep hills, and MUD . We won’t be going fast, but it’s a tough trail.

We’ll do the Red (Canyon) trail this time.

OUR PACE: Those who hike with me know that my pace is slower than other hiking groups. This is NOT A POWER HIKE. Pace will be moderate/relaxed, about 2 mph, and just downright SLOW inside the canyon. We’re here to enjoy the scenery, not set a speed record. Bring your camera.

If you’re in a hurry, you won’t like this hike and probably won’t like our group. There are other faster hiking groups on meetup, if that’s what you like.

• DIFFICULT 4.5 Miles, allow 3+ hours.

• BRING WATER FOR YOUR DOG and yourself. Creek for watering dogs, depends on weather if it’s dry or even frozen.

• Heated bathrooms at parking lot! YIPPEE!

DRIVING DIRECTIONS…

YOUR GPS SHOULD WORK HERE, good cell reception ONCE YOU GET CLOSE. Some spots along the way with bad reception.

About 25 minutes from Eureka/Hwy 44. About 15-20 minutes beyond Hilda Young. Not too hard to find, if you TRUST the directions below.

Hwy 109 south of Eureka, cross river and go to stoplight (Windswept subdivision ahead, Hwy F and Hwy W). Turn right on F, follow it about 4-5 miles to “T” at Hwy FF/Lynch Road. Turn left on FF/Lynch, follow it about 4 miles to “T” at Byrnesville Road. Turn right on Byrnesville, go approximately 3 miles to huge new entrance on right. Meet at upper parking lot, near old house.

If lot is full (it often is) there is a lower lot below the pavilion.
