Happy Wednesday! We hope that you have been able to get into your new school year routines. This email serves to provide you the necessary information in order to make the best experience possible for your Trailblazer this Saturday.
We will be visiting Old Man's Cave in Hocking Hills State Park. We will hike a total of 2-3 miles as we see waterfalls, the Devil's Bathtub, and hike along a portion of the Buckeye Trail; a national scenic trail. The trail is well traversed and maintained very nicely. The weather is going to be warm, so please make sure your Trailblazer dresses appropriately and has water. Transportation and lunch will be provided.
The following information is super important.
What to bring:
- Water bottle (one liter minimum)
- notepad to take notes (optional)
- string bag or day hike pack
- sunscreen/bug spray (we will have natural bug spray)
What to wear:
- Hiking boots/shoes or athletic shoes (NO CROCS or SLIDES)
- Comfortable clothes to hike in (shorts and t-shirts are recommended)
Pick up and Drop Off:
As mentioned on the registration page we will be picking up and dropping Trailblazers off at Beavercreek Station in Beavercreek. Click here for directions. Pick up will be at 9:00am (please arrive by 8:45), and drop off will be at 3:00 (please arrive by 2:45). We will be leaving Beavercreek Station no later that 9:05. That is to ensure that our Trailblazers get the most time out on trail. If something comes up please text or call us at 937-802-0801.
Another way to stay connected is through our Facebook Parent Page. You can join here: Trailblazer Parent Page. You can also join our group chat on Discord. You can join here: Trailblazing Hope Outdoors Discord
Finally, we need to make sure that all Trailblazers have a waiver on file. If you have not filled one out for your child in the last 12 months please do so here: Online Waiver
In order for us to best communicate we ask that you respond to this email. It will help us know who has received and read the previous information. All you need to do is reply with your first car (mine was an 86 Honda Civic).
See you on the trail!
