Registration is closed

The Crag offers more than 10 climbing routes, but we won't carry ropes or use any of the handholds. We might get to watch climbers. We'll go up Imery Trail, bypass Keyhole and the other quarries and circle the huge limestone borrow pit, looking for lime slag and fall flowers. A few ups and downs, but good trail. On the way back we may explore some interesting loops of the mountain bike trails. Meet at Meads Quarry (just past the entrance to Ijams Nature Center), near the bathrooms, at 9:00am. Hike about 5.5 miles with optional minor rock scrambling. Option to swim after the hike.

Leader: Doris Gove
