Join fellow humanists for an evening in downtown Fruita during the Fruita Fourth Friday event. Fruita Fourth Fridays are meant to be an evening of community, art, music, food and drink. We weren't able to find much information about this month's Fourth Friday, but we'll take whatever it brings. We may also have a bit of a scavenger hunt to learn more about the surroundings. We plan to visit some of the local businesses together, grab some food and/or drink, meet some of the locals and spend some time socializing with one another.

Mar. 12th, 2017 - Mica Mine Hike & Trail Cleanup

We will be hiking the Mica Mine Trail and cleaning up any trash we encounter on our return trip to help clean up our local environment. This trail is considered to be one of the classic hikes in the area. It leads to an old mica mine that is also a great place to enjoy a packed lunch. The trail is rated as an "Easy" trail by www.gjhikes.com and is 2.6 miles roundtrip. There is some uneven terrain and some fairly steep steps near the beginning of the trail. The mine area is a place kids tend to love climbing around and children are welcome on this trip. Dogs are allowed on this trail, but please be aware that there tends to be heavy usage by other people with dogs that may not be on a leash. 

We will supply trash bags and we will not be cleaning existing dog waste on this trip. You may want to bring a pair of gloves for handling trash or consider bringing something else to grab trash.

When: Sunday, March 12th at 10 am

Where: Mica Mine Trail  (Turn Right onto Little Park Road. 5.5 mi on Little Park Road, Bangs Canyon Trailhead on Left)
