The day was a little chilly but after hiking up a few hills, you can warm up quickly,  The overlooks were very pretty which made the steep ascents well worth the effort.  Several club members enjoyed dinner at Fratelli’s after the hike.  We can thank Cathy for leading the hike and Roger for taking the pictures.

This was a perfect Sunday afternoon.  The weather was good for hiking and the hike was not too strenuous.  We met several mountain bikers on the trail who were also enjoying the afternoon. Sharon served treats after the hike and Roger took the pictures.  Thank you both for leading the enjoyable hike.

The Ansted Trail has always been a popular hike.  As you notice in the pictures, the skies were blue and the temperature was ideal for a Sunday outing.  Please take a few moments to enjoy the pictures which were taken by Roger and thank you Gina for leading the fine hike.

     This is a new hike which was led by Lois  We completed the first loop of the hike and then encountered  a short thunder storm while completing the second loop.  The views along the river trail and the ridge walk were beautiful.  Lois served watermelon before the hike and after the hike.  After completing a warn hike,  the watermelon always  tastes better after the hike.  Thank you for the pictures Roger.

National Trails Day-Beech Fork State Park-June 4, 2016

June 14th, 2016 Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on National Trails Day-Beech Fork State Park-June 4, 2016

Our trail club celebrated National Trails Day with a hike at Beech Fork State Park.  The hike started with sunny skies  but about half way through the walk, we found ourselves on a ridge and in a severe thunder storm.  We had to shorten our hike because of safety issues.  After our adventure with the  thunder and rain, we had lunch at Hillbilly Hotdog under blue skies.  Thank you for the pictures Roger and thank you for leading the hike Sharon.

There was a good turn out for this hike as you can see in Roger’s pictures.  Sharon served snacks and beverages after she led our walk.  One of the best  benefits of a trail club hike is the social interaction.
