Come join us for hiking and campfire fun at Mathew's Arm.

We will hike Overall Run on Saturday - this is an approximately 8.5 mile difficult loop.  There is significant elevation gain on this hike, so please make sure you are in good hiking shape.  There is also a natural waterslide and swimming hole along the trail, so if you want to jump in, remember to wear something that is quick-dry.

Then we'll enjoy good times and food by the campfire. You will be responsible for bringing your own food on this trip for all meals. Please feel free to join with other members to plan meals.

Sunday we will head out and visit a local winery on our way home - most likely Unicorn Winery.
