Join us for our Mother’s Day Ramble at Marsh Creek 8, fondly referred to as “Big Bend.” We will be hiking through a beautiful and vibrant oak forest with elevation gain of about 500 feet. It’s a leisurely hike perfect for hikers at any level and should be great for kids 7 years old and up! It’s also a great location for family photos. We recommend wearing sturdy shoes, an extra jacket, and sunscreen. Bring lots of water and snacks.

RVSP: To allow everyone equal access in signing up, registration for this hike will open two months prior to the hike.

Meet: 14350 Marsh Creek Road, east of Clayton.

Directions: The 14350 Marsh Creek Road property driveway is 3.6 miles east of the intersection with Morgan Territory Road, and 3.2 miles west of the intersection with Deer Valley Road. East of Aspara and Gill Roads, the canyon will widen out on the south, you’ll pass a large faded green barn, and a large flat area along the creek will come into view—right as you’re about to pass the driveway. It’s the westernmost of two side-by-side straight, north-south driveways and is difficult to see if you are approaching from the west. Please do not drive down the easternmost driveway. (Also note that there is no reliable cell phone signal and Google Maps will send you too far west.)
