    Big Rock Addition Hike

    Come explore this new Area!

    Sun. Nov 18, Stevens Creek Trailhead-1 pm.-4 pm.

    Jeff Lambert will lead you through the proposed new 120 -acre Big Rock Addition.  The route is approx. 3 miles with some steep and difficult trails as well as some sections off trail. 

    This property provides access to Big Rock and has to be protected for access trails and a buffer for the Rocks of Sharon.  This will also connect with other properties to the east and west.  

    Bring hiking poles, snacks, water and dress for the weather.  Because of the advanced terrain, boots would be most appropriate footwear.  

    Event is free, but please register.  

    Note: Since winter can bring extreme conditions, trip leaders will decide IF cancellation is warranted and if it is, notify registrants by 6 am the previous morning to the hike. So, check your emails the day prior to the scheduled hike.
