OR, if you prefer, you could meet the group at 7:45 or 8:00 a.m., at the park in the upper parking lot by the restrooms.  The park is off of Highway 700 and the address is: 1 Scenic Drive.

Right now the weather for Big Spring looks like 70’s and a 20% chance of rain during the time of our walk.

There is no admission fee for the Big Spring State Park, but please bring your $3.00 walk fee and your record booklets.  New members and guests walk free.  We usually eat somewhere afterwards, so bring money for that.

Some of us plan to do an easy lap or two around the top of the mountain, and others plan to do a 10k, either on the trail or the paved roads.

Hope to see you Saturday.

Bring your National Parks pass (if you have one), for free or a reduced admission fee.  Also bring water.  A flashlight is fun for highlighting the nooks and crannies.  We plan to eat somewhere before returning to Midland.

For our ‘Old’ members, please bring your $3.00 and record booklets.  New members and guests get to walk for free.

AVA Event # 115435 – 2020/Y2604
