Tuesday, May 24, Cloudland Canyon State Park: Can’t Hardly Loop, 3.5 miles, easy. We will start the hike at the Ascalon trailhead in Georgia, learning how the trail received its name. There is a five-dollar parking fee. This is a 3.5-mile loop with fairly easy terrain and an elevation gain of roughly 300 feet, with some rocks and some uphill, but no extended climb. The hike will take us along a scenic trail through the woods along a creek bed. In the past, there have been reports of river otters along the creek. If all hikers agree, we can explore a little further to see how this trail connects to the main section of Cloudland Canyon. The return to the parking area will be on the Cloudland Connector trail. All hiking speeds will be accommodated. Meet at Food City off Tennessee Avenue in St. Elmo at 8:30 am. Please register with hike leader Delores Ladd at ladddeloresgmail.com or text to 214-422-7206. If registering by email, please include a phone number so you can be notified of any changes.
