MEMBERS ONLY: First Day Hike @ Northwood Meadows State Park
**This event is only available to official club members and their families.**
ABOUT THE EVENT:
This walk is for official Club members only. Our Community events will start up again in February. Please check the Adventures section for additional details.
Every year in January, we host a New Year’s Day walk at Northwood Meadows State Park. It is the place where we launched our first official Club walk in January of 2019 (1st test walk was December 2018 at Blue Job). Members only are invited to join us to ring in the New Year. Start 2023 off in a positive way by joining your canine and human friends for some fresh air and exercise.
We will hike the Huckins Orchard Trail from the parking lot to the Lake Trail loop and back for approximately 2.5 to 2.7 miles. We do expect the trail to be icy and highly recommend YakTrax or ice cleats depending on conditions. If conditions allow, this will be a snowshoe hike instead.
We are limiting this event to 20 members, but if we have a waitlist, we will bring on additional adventure guides to accommodate more members participating.
IS THIS EVENT GOOD FOR REACTIVE DOGS?
Dogs must be on leash at this trail. The trail is mostly wide but does get narrower in locations. There are places to step off if we meet an oncoming dog. Depending on the weather, this may be a busy trail on New Year’s Day. Please remember that you are also welcome to attend without your dog if you feel this would be an uncomfortable setting for them. If you have concerns or questions about if this event is right for your dog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
The Foster Pond Loop Trail is rated as Level 1.5 Moderate. See an explanation of our Trail Rating System. Proper footwear is highly recommended since leaves cover the trails and roots/rocks may be hidden. There may also a few muddy areas.
