Looks like the Backwoods hiking group is gearing up again for another outing. They’re headed to Roman Nose State Park. Have a look at the information below for more information about this hike.
Where: Roman Nose State Park near Watonga.
When: This Saturday. Meet at Backwoods in Norman at 7:45 a.m. to sign waivers and organize carpools. The group will leave promptly at 8. There is also the option of meeting the group at the State Park General Store at 9:30. If you choose to meet the group at the park, please RSVP so organizers know to look for you there.
Details: The group will hike the Watonga Lake North Loop (4.9 miles). This hike begins and ends at the General Store. The hike is rated as moderate. Most reasonably fit adults and children over the age of 12 should have no problems completing the hike. This is a great hike to enjoy with your active dog! The trail consists of dirt and large rocks. It is mostly flat with some short climbs and descents.
What to Bring: A daypack with 3 liters of water, snacks, and a lunch (the group will stop and eat on the trail). Dress in layers so that you can remove or add layers as needed during the hike. Depending on the weather, a rain jacket or sun protection may be necessary. If it has been raining or snowing, the trails at Roman Nose can be really muddy, so boots would be best. An extra pair of shoes to change into for the car ride home is not a bad idea. Dogs are welcome. If you are bringing your dog, make sure you carry extra water and a container to put it in, as well as food and a leash.
