Due to Covid-19, we are not encouraging carpooling. If you want to ride with someone, you must make those arrangements independently. We practice social distancing and we wear masks. We want to ensure we keep everyone as healthy and safe as in our ability to do so. Please adhere to these guidelines. So, with that said, come prepared to drive with $5.00 cash to pay for parking. Note that a FREE State Park parking pass can be checked out at your local library with your library card.
If you choose to carpool you are asked to donate $5 - $10 toward gas and the parking fee of $5. We adhere to the 'Leave No Trace' principles ... what you carry in, you carry out, with the exception of your indelible memories of the adventure and your photos.
Bring plenty of water, a light healthy lunch, a smile and a friendly disposition! You will be guaranteed to have a wonderful outing in the wilderness - WOW! As always, wear sturdy (gym) shoes, or hiking boots (Advice: no new shoes or boots ... break them in first!). Please be sure you dress in comfortable layered, clothing, appropriate for the weather.
