On Sunday, May 8, 2011, the Pine StreetWalkers will return to the Victoria and White Tail Trails in hopes of catching a glimpse of the freshly blooming Pink Lady’s Slipper. This will be a three mile loop hike with a considerable climb up a rocky trail. The pace will be as slow as the slowest walker. Wear good footwear and bring water. Of course, bring your cameras. Sorry, you may not pickthis endangered wildflower. So take plenty of photos for your mother and take them to her on this Mothers Day. Better yet, have your mother come along. We will meet at the trail head at 1 pm. Directions to the trail – take PA Route 225 north out of Dauphin (approximately 2 miles), turn right onto PA Route 325, go exactly 5 miles, the trail head parking lot is on your left. Be careful, the parking area is easy to miss as it is behind trees and just after you crest a small hill. Sign up at the Welcome Center. Why not consider car pooling from church?
