    Description:

    Please Register - Only REGISTRANTS are permitted to participate in this event.

    If you have registered but can't attend, log in, click on "Already registered", then cancel.
    REMINDER: A mask and hand sanitizer are required.

    At this time, we are accepting "guest" registrations. Please see the TBN website for instructions on how to register as a guest.

    Registration will be open 6 days before the event.  We will open the site for registrations the Monday morning before the hike at 9.30 am. I realize this can be a pain but it will help prevent people from registering for all future hikes.  It will be just like the rides that we have been doing this season.

    Please keep in mind that Winter Hiking is different than Fall Hiking.  Proper footwear and icers are required

    Situated in the Oak Ridge Moraine much of the surface consists of hills which are made up of sandy and gravelly materials with underlying clay.  Sugar maples and beech trees make up most of the hardwood forest while white pines are dominant in the sandy areas.  This is not a hard hike but should be fun at this time of year.

    Distance:  12 km
