Hike at Ruffner Mountain
March 26, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sorry everyone, but I have decided to postpone the hike until this Thursday, March 26. Three different weather services are predicting rain tomorrow (one of them has it at 100% chance, another says 90%).
So the hike will be Thursday – same place, same time.
I’m really sorry if this inconveniences anyone.
I’ll be hiking at Ruffner Mountain since my gym has closed. Anyone wishing to join me is welcome (up to 10 people) as long as you aren’t exhibiting signs of the virus.
We will do our best to follow that 6-foot distance recommendation (no group hugs or group pics).
Haven’t decided on an exact route yet, but this will definitely be moderate to strenuous (closer to strenuous than moderate). There will be some good hills (including the Ridge and Valley Trail).
Please do not sign up for this hike if you usually struggle to keep up with the pace of most hikes.
This will be about 6 or 7 miles, depending on the trails we choose.
We’ll meet in the dirt parking lot of the Irondale ball fields directly across the road from the back entrance to Ruffner.
Make sure to wear good hiking shoes/boots and dress in layers. Also bring water and snacks.
There will be an optional picnic-style lunch afterwards.
