HIKE DISCRIPTION: Hikers will split into three groups but essentially walk the same trail. Each group will walk at thier own pace. Climbers and Tourists will start from the snowmobile trail off RT 36 at the lower park entrance and climb along the eastern trail working thier way up to the upper park and then crossing over StoneyBrook Creek to the west side of the park and continue down to the lower park parking lot.
The Naturalists will car pool to the upper park and walk toward StoneyBrook Creek and cross over to the east trail and work their way down the snowmobile trial that the climbers and tourists climbed up. Once at the bottom, they will walk to the lower parking lot.
Most of the trail is up and down hill at the beginning and end of the hike but, levels off in the upper park. Trails are most likely going to be wet and slippery so poles and traction devices or good treaded hiking boots are recommended.
