Hungryland Hike with hotdogs and hamburgers

December 7, 2011

Oh, this sounds nice! A break  from the craziness of the holidays and a short quiet and peaceful sojourn...

On Saturday, Dec. 10, the  Northeast Everglades Trails Association invites hikers, bikers and horseback riders for a day of recreation on public lands at the newly opened section of the Hungryland Wildlife and Environmental Area.

Hungryland is teeming with wildlife and recreational opportunities, members of the trail association say.

Hungryland is located in Martin and Palm Beach counties and is managed jointly by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The trail association is hosting three free tours:
·         Hikers: Hike approximately 3.5 miles of rugged trail through pine flatwoods and pasture. Be prepared for wet feet.
·         Bikers: Cycle down Old Indiantown Trail, either 5 miles out and back, or an additional 7 miles. Be prepared for several water crossings of about 1 to 1.5 feet deep. The trail is shell rock or hard dirt/grass double-track road.
·         Horseback Riders: Ride up to 8 miles of trails. Several trail leaders will be available. Be prepared to ride through water.

Oh good. And there's food! Grilled hamburgers and hotdogs will be available for participants starting about 12:30 p.m. at “The Porch.”  Water will also be available by cooler. Participants are asked to bring a bottle to fill.

WHEN:          Saturday, December 10, 2011

TIME:            10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

WHERE:        Park at the old dairy barn pad through Gate 9 of Hungryland at Old Indiantown Road. Shut the gate behind you. Meet at the “The Porch,” where the old dairy barn stood.

Here's a map...
