Fletch's 4th Annual Thanksgiving Hike

November 23rd, 2017 @7AM - CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN

Join me on the North side of the covered bridge at 7AM for a simple hike up the Stanislaus River.
Follow the weather and dress appropriately for a cool morning hike. You will want to wear comfortable shoes for hiking on rocky paths and bring along some water to keep yourself hydrated.

If you are driving - bring 5$ for parking in Stanislaus Recreation Parks (credit/debit only at the parking lot machine). 

Kid friendly? Yup, I've taken my kids on these trails since they were 5 years old. It is also easy enough to backpack a little one if you want to bring a tiny tot along. 


Why so early?  This year, I've decided to lead the hike on the Friday morning after Thanksgiving as part of my annual pushback on Black Friday nonsense! I found that REI has an initiative called #OptOutside and I chose to participate with them.

Who's going? If you would like to meet and a random bunch of cool people and have fun walking the trails of the beautiful Knight's Ferry recreational area, I'd love to have you join me.

What if it rains? I won't take anyone to hike in a rainstorm, but I'm fine walking on a foggy morning or even light drizzle.
Pay attention to the weather and I will keep this page updated. Text me if you are unsure.
