Shaffer Shuffle Hike tomorrow at Franklin Mountains State Park/Peak Fitness Challenge!

Tomorrow, Franklin Mountains State Park is offering a guided hike on one of our Peak Fitness Challenge trails, the Shaffer Shuffle.  Sign up for the Peak Fitness Challenge, here; then hike the trail and come back and log your miles online.  Once you complete a hike, your name goes into a file...and every month we pick out a few names and send those folks prizes

Sunday, June 16-  ($8.00 – this is the entrance fee + activity fee)
Schaeffer Shuffle Trail
Start: 7:00 a.m.
Length: about 2.5 miles / 1.5 - 2 hours
Trail Difficulty:  Steep initial descent down old jeep road; transition to relatively well maintained trail with technical sections into the canyon, leveling out along the ridgeline, then another steep and technical descent down the backside before becoming an easy leisurely stroll down the trail. We’ll reconnect with the old jeep road and have one final steep ascent back up to the start of the trail.

For Hikes:  Water, snacks, flashlight/headlamp for mine tour, sturdy hiking shoes/boots, hiking stick, camera, and binoculars!
