Today was our annual holiday hike in Sycamore Grove with our usual pot-luck brunch. Every year since January 1, 2010, we have done a celebratory hike in this way. Our first year as a group was in 2009 and since our regular hiking day happened to be New Years Day, we decided to include a pot-luck brunch for after the hike at Brushy Peak. Some of our initial hikers are still with the group.
This is one of our favorite hikes, leaving from the Wetmore Street entrance and going up the hill to the Frog Pond. Then the trail loops down the hill and back to the parking area on the paved path. It is about a 3 mile hike with nice variety in the trail, and not too difficult. We look forward to another year of hiking.
