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)
