Space is limited to 10 people, so be sure to sign up early. To reserve your spot, email Andy at We will meet at 9:30 am at the restroom/basball field parking area. Bring lunch and water.

Loch Lomond Recreation Area with Andy Werner. Saturday, August 3, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

The route will vary depending on what people want to see. One interesting area has had substantial Glyphosate use to control French broom. We'll see and discuss the ongoing recovery of the native vegetation.

The hike is about 6 miles long with a 600-700 foot elevation gain. Most of the hiking route is shady but there are some sunny warm areas. There are some steep and slippery hills, so a walking stick might be useful.

Space is limited to 10 people, so be sure to sign up early. To reserve your spot, email Andy at Meet at 9:00 am at the Felton Faire parking lot (Safeway) and we'll carpool to Loch Lomond. At the lake, we'll park in the Glen Corrie lot. Bring lunch and water.
