On Friday, Sept. 26, we will travel to Big South Fork and hike Slave Falls/Needle Arch where we will see a slender, 60-foot waterfall and a delicate 50-foot Pennsylvanian sandstone arch formation. We will also see rock shelters which according to stories is how the falls got its name by runaway slaves hiding in these rock shelters. This is an easy 3.5 mile loop hike. Please bring a bag lunch to eat on the trail or after the hike.

Hiking has risks and safety is a high priority on every outing. Hazards include uneven trails, drop-offs, slippery rocks, stream crossings, wildlife encounters, auto accidents, and more. The hiking group assumes no collective or individual liability for any mishaps. Hiking is at your own risk.

There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board across from the Fairfield Glade Post Office for each hike. The group will depart from the parking lot at the corner of Peavine and Stonehenge at 8 a.m. sharp. Please be there between 7:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. to receive information and form carpools. If you ride with someone else to and from the hike, the policy is to reimburse the driver for gas. The amount to reimburse the driver for this hike is $7 per person. Please have the correct amount. We hope to be back to the Glade by approximately 2:30 p.m.

Call the leaders of the hike, Bob and Helen Callis, 707-8177, if you have any questions.
