ROCKWOOD RESERVATION DOG HIKE

October 22, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm EDT

RATED EASY TO MODERATE, WITH 2 BIG HILLS, but mostly level-ish and good trail surface.

Our group’s favorite in-town hike. Very scenic. A couple of small caves. Trails are gravel and some paved. Mostly level-ish with 2 hills to climb. A bit of a workout, but it probably won’t kill you if you’re in reasonably decent shape.

We will hike the Quarry Trails. First the Rock Quarry and then the Trail Among the Trees. Rated Easy to Moderate.

NO CELL RECEPTION AT PARKING LOT! If you’re late or lost, we cannot help you. Driving directions below…read them.

Our pace will be relaxed but moderate. We will stop whenever necessary to water the dogs or look at the scenery. Don’t be in a hurry, just enjoy the day. If you’re a power hiker, you probably won’t like this hike or this group.

HIKING BOOTS strongly recommended but not required.

Total of about 4 miles on 2 trails, figure 2.5 hours.

BRING PLENTY OF WATER FOR YOUR DOG & YOURSELF. We will stop at the spring-fed creek between each leg of the hike, but there’s no watering holes on the ridgetops.

SHORT LEASH, as always. No retractables.

NO GUEST DOGS. Our events are for member dogs only.

Human guest are welcome, but you’re encouraged to just come and socialize with other group members.

PLEASE….keep your RSVP updated so we don’t all stand around a parking lot waiting for you. Our group hates “No Shows”

We hike in a light/moderate rain. Watch website if weather threatens. We usually don’t cancel a hike until the morning of.

Excessive heat will cancel this hike. You never know this time of year.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS :

We hit the trail promptly at 10:00, with or without you. Arrive early and be ready to go by then.

NO CELL RECEPTION at the parking lot…know before you go.

Hwy 109 from either 44 or Manchester/100. Turn west on WOODS AVENUE, about halfway between 44 and 100. There are brown signs with white letters just before the turn on Woods.
