We have a date for our hike up the beautiful Pipe Fork Creek. Thank you for your responses to our Survey Monkey questionnaire! Based upon those responses the hike will be this coming Sunday, June 20th. We will meet in the Safeway shopping center parking lot, near KeyBank. This is the Safeway near the intersection of Williams Highway and Union Avenue. We will be leaving the Safeway parking lot at 9:00 am sharp and carpooling to the trail head. Try to be there by 8:45 am.
Joe Stodola will be leading the hike and will be accompanied by Cheryl Bruner and, possibly, Chaz Rogers as well of the Williams Community Forest Project who will function as our expert guide(s). Please join us on a breath taking adventure through old growth forest, resplendent with waterfalls and Port Orford Cedar. Our County Commissioners are considering selling this land to the highest bidder. In all likelihood, the highest bidder would purchase it for logging. There may not be much more time to see this area in its current state of natural beauty.
We plan to conclude the hike at 1:00 pm. Bring water. Wear comfortable hiking shoes. Dress for the weather. The terrain varies from easy to moderate. The pace will be relaxed with ample time to ask questions.
Fourteen people responded to the survey. Seven said they would been available for this day. Hopefully, this time slot has opened up for more of you. Also, we would love to have you join us, even if you did not respond to the survey. Just be at the Safeway parking lot on time.
