FARRAGUT PARK TRAILS RIDE, HIKE, OR JUST HANGOUT JULY1, 2023 Join us at our private campground, Little Bear Ranch(LBR), on the border of Farragut State Park. There is an easy trail entrance to the park from our property area. Farragut Park has over 45 miles of trails with a wide variety of surfaces and difficulties. Nancy Lewis will lead an 8-mile medium-difficulty bike ride through the center of the park, for approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, to familiarize riders with the trail junction system out there. A trail bike is all that is needed. If persons want to try the 14.5 mile perimeter bike ride, a mountain bike will be needed. There are nice hiking trails also, if that's more your speed. Meet at Super One parking lot in Hayden in front of the Ace hardware store at 8:15am to arrange carpool rides. We will leave at 8:30 for the short 20 minute drive to LBR. If you want to drive yourself, the address is 31577 Caravelle Rd., Athol. There is plenty of parking space at LBR. We will leave by 9:30 for our rides and hikes. Return to LBR around noon for a meal and hangout on the lawn at LBR. Bring chairs, eating utensils, drinks, a dish to share and your meat choice to grill, in a cooler, for a potluck bonfire meal after the rides and hikes. If weather is inclement, we will retire to covered areas in LBR. Come on out!! Greg and Nancy Lewis firstname.lastname@example.org 208-451-4649

June 24, 2023 Meeting at 8:30 AM at Cherry Hill Park
A trip down the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene and Coeur d’Alene River from the Bumblebee Bridge to the Cataldo Boat Ramp . The river over this reach is constantly losing gradient and has only moderate riffles that decrease in number. The float takes roughly three hours and will require leaving a vehicle(s) at the Boat Ramp to shuttle participants back to the Honeysuckle Bridge to pick up the vehicles left there. Participants should bring a craft, paddles, lunch and have a life vest.
I can furnish an additional canoe on first come basis, if requested.
This Nordic Club event is a pleasant nearby Kayak/Canoe paddle up Wolf Lodge Creek to near Wolf Lodge Inn. We will start at a pull off on the west side of Highway 97 which is 1/3 of a mile south after you exit I-90 (Exit 22) at the Wolf Lodge Exit. Since this location is nearby, plan to meet at the launch site at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Jun 16, for a 2 to 2 1/2 hour excursion. In the past we have seen moose, snakes, muskrats, osprey, eagles, Great Blue Herons, cows plus many multifarious birds. As an evening event hopefully, someone can attend after work.
An RSVP would help in receiving a notification if there is a cancellation due to weather. Rain is a possibility and if canceled we will attempt to try this on Saturday. Remember to have a current Invasive Species decal. Super-One and North-40 sell the decals.
