This hike begins in Springdale and follows paved roads, traverses Log Cabin Hill, LeFever Hill, down Rich Hill, and then up to Emmerling Park and back down. Plenty of hills on this one. Meet at Emmerling Park at 9 AM. Directions: Follow Route 910 along the Yellow Belt and turn right onto Cove Run Road (adjacent to Emmerling Ice Cream) for 0.3 miles.

  • You don't need to notify the hike leader that you plan to attend. Simply show up on time.
  • Please bring at least a quart of water (more if the temperature will be warm) and some energy snacks (e.g. Powerbar).
  • We will meet at the hike end point and carpool to the start point, leaving a sufficient number of cars behind to carry people back to the start when the hike is over.
  • The minimum unaccompanied age is 12.
  • Plan for each hike to take 6 hours (up to 4 hours for the hike plus up to 2 hours for sign-in, announcements, car shuttling, and so forth).
  • The hike is free. A suggested donation of $3 per person may be given to the hike leader on the day of the hike.
