3.) Bird Hike
This event is Saturday, February 22nd, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kanawha State Forest.
The hike will be 3.5-4 miles mostly along Middle Ridge Road with a short spur out to Teaberry Trail to visit the overlook. This is a slow, birding hike as many of you may know, and will take a minimum of 4 hours.
However, please feel free to head back to vehicles whenever you need to leave. Middle Ridge Road is easy to follow. For those who would like to stay for the whole hike, we’ll head back to our vehicles via Lindy Trail, making a wide loop. And, as always, we may alter the route somewhat depending on the weather.
Please bring water, snacks, sturdy shoes, walking sticks, and binoculars if you have them. Lindy can be a steep and wet descent, so walking sticks are recommended. If the trail is too muddy, we’ll head back on Middle Ridge.
Hope to see you out there and fingers crossed for good weather and birds!
