1) Check the weather, dress appropriately, tell someone where you are going and for how long, and have some fun!
2) Recommended Equipment: Participants are required to bring their own personal equipment/gear if they should feel the need, such as poles, hat and sunglasses and a rain jacket. Proper footwear is recommended (firm soled hiker) as hikes will take place on uneven ground and may include puddles and mud. We also strongly recommend bringing sunscreen and bug spray along with 1L of drinking water in a back pack on every trek.
3) Dogs: IF all registered members are comfortable with dogs, and IF trails allow dogs, they are welcome to join ON LEASH. Canine participation is not guaranteed at time of registration. No dogs allowed on the first hike (this is when participant canine comfort levels will be determined.)
FCSSC's Spring 2021 hiking series takes place on some great marked and unmarked trails in and around the Forest City. (***Note: trail locations may change within 48 hours depending on conditions observed. All changes will be communicated as early as possible).
Trails we will explore in the Spring hike series include:
Please note that personal transportation is required as not all trails are accessible by public transportation. We may explore trails that are up to 30 minutes outside of the city's core.
***Location information is as known at time of posting. Locations are subject to change at any time. Additional locations may be added to accommodate demand.**
