Winter Season Hike & Sock Drive, 6.4 miles

A hike on the Harmony Trail and Rachel Carson Trail, climbing 951 ft, descending 1102 ft

Join us on our annual Winter Hike, not on Superbowl Sunday this year! For the sixth year, we will be collecting socks for the needy. Please consider bringing new or gently used socks!

We'll carpool to the Harmony Trail and hike back to the Cabin mostly via the Rachel Carson Trail (we skip the RCT between the woods east of McKinney Road and Pearce Mill Road). This hike will be about 6.5 miles, moderate difficulty (some modest ascents and potentially tricky descents if snow/ice are present).  An overview of the route will be given at the start of the hike.  FREE and open to everyone who consents to our Participant Agreement (no need to sign up)!

  • You don't need to notify the hike leader that you plan to attend. Simply show up on time.
  • Please carry water (more if the temperature will be warm) and some energy snacks (e.g. Powerbar).
  • If it's hunting season, please wear safety orange.
  • 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.
  • Although dogs are wonderful, please don't bring them on this hike.
  • The minimum unaccompanied age is 12.
  • Plan for hike overhead time including sign-in, announcements, car shuttling, and so forth.
  • The hike is free and open to everyone.
