Event Notes:

Eagles, Hawks & Condors Hike

Let's spend Memorial Day Sunday hiking in Morgan Territory at 9:30am . Your choice of a moderate 6.2 mile/1000' shorter hike or a moderate++ 9.5 mile/1650' long hike. There is also an option to turn around halfway through the long hike for a 7.5 mile/1260' hike. We are doing a special 3 mile out and back for the long portion so Steve can cross a 1 mile section of Eagle Trail off his list!

Route is Volvon, right on Blue Oak to its end, right on Volvon, right on Volvon Loop, then left to stay on the loop. Short hike may take a break at the tip of the loop. All hikes continue on the loop to Eagle Trail. Short hike continues to a left on Volvon Trail following it a couple of miles to the Prairie Falcon Trail. This one is easy to miss and really pretty so BOLO! Follow the trail around until you rejoin Volvon for 100' then another easy to miss right on Condor Trail. Follow it to its end, through the cow gate and left back to the parking area.

The long hike turns right on Eagle Trail and follows it 1.5 miles to its end where you may take a break before heading back the same way, rejoining the short hike route. A middle option is to take the long hike but turn back at the intersection with Bay Creek Trail for a 7.5 mile/1260' option.

Please note: This group does not stay together on the hike instead relying on arrows put on the ground with flour to mark turns. You are encouraged to stay with others who are hiking your speed and you should also carry the trail route map either downloaded to your phone or in paper form.
