Heart Mountain Community Hike set for Saturday

Posted

With the area’s wet weather hopefully in the rearview mirror, the annual Heart Mountain Community Hike has been rescheduled for Saturday.

Participants are asked to meet at the Heart Mountain Ranch Preserve office at 8 a.m.

“For some folks, it’s an annual spring event for others this year may be the first time,” said Bebe Crouse with The Nature Conservancy, which owns the preserve. “Whether newbie or veteran, the annual Heart Mountain Community Hike is always an adventure.”

The event is intended for all ages. Attendees can choose an ambitious hike to the summit or just take a shorter amble enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of spring.

Organizers ask that hikers leave thier dogs at home for the event.

They recommend bringing comfortable hiking shoes, sunglasses, water, lunch, sunscreen and clothing appropriate for changing conditions. If you tend to set a pace that moves you away from the group, be sure to have bear spray with you. Binoculars and a camera may also come in handy.
