Description: Meet at the Discovery Center on Constitution Way at 9:15am. Do not go to Campsite Dr. where bike rides begin. Restrooms available at meeting place. This hike is a repeat of the Tuesday Group event of 2/13/18. The 5-miler involves several interconnected trails (White Oaks Nature, Wynn’s Mill & Twin Forts. Bring the usual—water, snack, $ for lunch. Ice cream too distant to consider. Wear appropriate clothing for conditions. Hike will not be cancelled because of weather. Along the hike there will be Civil War teachings related to significant sites encountered. This involves the failed Union Peninsula Campaign of 1862. This will be of interest of those who love American history while getting some exercise. No stuffy classroom here! There are five lunch options at Jefferson Shoppes, 13175 Warwick Blvd. Hungry hikers can choose from Mystic Jamaica, Skrimp Shack (not a typo), Blue Café Bar & Sushi, Hot Wings, & Subway. Menus will be displayed at our 9:15 meeting. Choices, choices! I leave decisions to individuals/groups.
