Cabin John Creek Hike - Oct 22
An up and back 6 mile hike of the Cabin John Creek Trail from Locust Grove Nature Center to the Goya Dr trailhead and back.
Our goal is to involve residents of the Cabin John Creek Watershed in a safe outdoor shared experience that will be meaningful and educate you on the watershed.
Hike Event: Oct 22nd, 2022 at 10am
A 6 mile hike on the Cabin John Creek Trail from Locust Grove Nature Center to the trailhead at Goya Drive and back to the nature center. The festivities begin at 10 am with a StormWater Solutions presentation, followed by commencement of the hike. We expect the hike to take 3-4 hrs depending on the pace of the hikers.
Local residents have the option of participating by hiking just a portion of the trail that is convenient and near their neighborhood. Hiking smaller segments of just a mile or two from your favorite trailhead is welcome as well.
