Join us for a little fresh air and exercise on a cold January day in Oak Ridge. We'll begin hiking on the gravel East Quarry Road and turn onto the Big Oak trail for an invigorating climb up the ridge to the North Boundary greenway. Following the boundary, we'll pass several private homes with curious dogs before turning left down the Gallaher Trail to return to East Quarry Road. We'll pass the Gallaher cemetery and stop to check out the quarry toward the end of the hike. Meet at 10am at the large gravel parking area just west of the guard shack and Wisconsin Ave. Total distance 6.5 miles, rated moderate.
Pre-registration is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.
Leader: Amanda and Adam Beal
