Tuesday, January 9 — Walden’s Ridge Park trails, 4 to 5 miles, moderate, out-and-back. This is yet another new set of trails in the Chattanooga area, located on the side of Signal Mountain/Walden Ridge. We will start our hike at the bottom of the mountain, using the trailhead off Mountain Creek Road. We’ll meander through the woods in a gentle uphill fashion, then wander more or less downhill to return where we started. Rocks and boulders will be encountered. Crazy mountain bikers will be avoided. Walden Falls will be seen in the distance. Check the weather forecast and choose appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring food and water; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, and sunscreen as needed. For carpooling/caravanning, meet at 8:30 am ET at Food City on Signal Mountain Road, in the near back corner of the parking lot. https://bit.ly/3pk0suY Please register with hike leader Tom McElhone, 805-208-4654 or email@example.com Carpool cost $1.00.
