Mistletoe State Park – March 13th, meeting at 9:45 AM, 10:00 AM start
Description: Mistletoe State Park is located in Georgia on the shores of Clark’s Hill Lake, as Georgians call, Lake Strom Thurman. There’s a $5 park fee for each vehicle. There are many hiking trails located in the park. See Trails at Mistletoe State Park | Department Of Natural Resources Division (gastateparks.org). Dick and Tracy (DT) will lead us to one of the geocaches to be found there. If you are not familiar with geocaching it is the art of finding a box [or cache] based on the coordinates of its location. It is a sport enjoyed by many people worldwide. Caches usually contain several trinkets and a note pad. The idea is to take a trinket and leave one of your own. You can also leave a note for others to see. Please register a week ahead
Directions to the Park:The best route is to take Interstate 20 thru Augusta to Georgia 150 [Cobbham Road] and proceed north to the park. The distance is about 60 miles and should take about 1.25 hours.
Meeting Place: Meet at the campground office parking lot. There are not many parking spaces and it is OK to park on the grass along the entrance road.
Distance: About 2.5 Miles
Terrain: Relatively easy walking flat trail with a few short hills.
Bring: Water and your lunch if you want to picnic in the park after the hike. The hike leaders will reserve picnic shelter #3 for lunch after the hike – it’s a nice location on the water. They also will bring charcoal so bring your hots or hamburgers and your fix ‘ins for a true campground lunch with your hiking friends.
