There will be no water on the course. Please bring your own, if you think you’ll need some.

Map/Course notes:
With all the leaves on the ground, smaller trails – especially farther out from the park center – might feel rather indistinct. Occasionally, it will be easier to look for the trail marks on the trees.
Apparently, the park has had a dry spell as (crossable) water features may be crossed without difficulty, practically without getting wet.

The park shouldn’t be busy this time of the year, but please be careful if/when you cross paved areas.

As usual, we will accept payment on site by cash or check; anyone can pre-pay using PayPal.

However you plan to pay it would be helpful if you emailed me at lkolyvek@comcast.net indicating that you will attend and which course you will choose so we can have enough maps printed for everyone.

Please email me with any questions and hope to see you on Nov. 11!
