Your Bear Mountain Oktoberfest hike with HIKE for Mental Health with NAME is only a week away! We look forward to seeing you there! Here's what you need to know.
|Date:||Saturday, October 5, 2019|
|Start time:||Check-in is from 7:30-8am.|
|Location:||Meet at the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area parking lot. The address is 123 Main St. For Google Map directions to the parking lot, click here.|
|The plan:||Meet in the parking lot of Anthony Wayne Recreation Area at 8 AM sharp. There is an $10/vehicle parking fee (cash only) but if you get there early, sometimes it can be avoided. The hike will be an out-and-back route from the parking lot, arriving back to the parking lot in time for the opening of the Oktoberfest fair for brats, pretzels and other refreshments. Enjoy responsibly.|
|Est. finish time:||The hike will end around 1 pm. back at the starting point. Oktoberfest continues through the afternoon so stay as little or as much as you like.|
