Sierra Club hike at Lincoln Lake open to anyone up to the crooked and steep trail

Join us as we re-start the OHG Outings program with a 
short day hike around Lake Lincoln!
Location:  Lake Lincoln near Lincoln, AR (35 min from Fayetteville)
Carpooling: Meet at 8:30am near the intersection of Razorback and MLK Blvd (old 6th St).  We can park in the UA parking lot, NE of that intersection. Park close to the intersection.
Date:  Sunday June 3rd
Activity: Hiking to see and appreciate a local resource
Length: 5 miles around the lake (~3 hours)
Difficulty: Moderate. Rugged terrain with short, steep sections and a potentially wet creek crossing.  It is often dry, but will depend on precipitation.
What to Bring: Sturdy shoes, snacks, water, sunscreen, bug spray, weather appropriate clothing and a positive attitude
Who's Invited?  Anyone up to the task
There are no bathrooms or water facilities at the lake.

In order to participate on one of the Sierra Club's outings, you will need to sign a liability waiver. If you would like to read a copy of the waiver prior to the outing, please see or call415-977-5528.
In the interest of facilitating the logistics of some outings, it is customary that participants make carpooling arrangements. The Sierra Club does not have insurance for carpooling arrangements and assumes no liability for them. Carpooling ride sharing or anything similar is strictly a private arrangement among the participants. Participants assume the risks associated with this travel.

ALSO, something special coming up in October:

The Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area Fall Festival will be celebrated from 1:00 p.m. to
4:00 p.m. on Sunday October 7th.  We will have activities planned at the visitor center as well as at Historic Van Winkle Hollow.
I need some help in finding a volunteer musician who will play their instrument (guitar, banjo, harmonica…It doesn’t matter) as well as greet the public as they enter Van Winkle Hollow to experience the activities there.
Can anyone suggest to me someone who I might contact for this enjoyable job?
