About The Event
Get Outdoors – July 2 – Montour Trail - Hendersonville
The hike for this month will be part of the Montour Trail. As such is will be a smooth crushed limestone trail with only slight grade. Great for those who want a less strenuous hike. The plan will be to start at the parking lot by The Tandem Connection and hike to the Greer Tunnel. On the way we will encounter three bridges and one tunnel. We will have a great view of Chartiers Creek with an active railroad bridge over the creek. At an overpass of train tracks, there is a nice view of an active railroad tunnel. After retracing our steps back to the parking lot, if time permits, we may do a short section of the trail toward Interstate 79. That section has another bridge and art displays on the side of the trail. If hikers are so inclined after the hike, The Tandem Connection does sell ice cream cones as a reward for all the exercise.
We will meet at 9:00 a.m. in the main parking lot and carpool to the hike. The trailhead is about a 20 minute drive. We will limit the hike 2 hours. So, it will about 12:00 p.m. when we return. If it rains, we will reschedule. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call so we don’t leave without you.
