Informal Hike – Sunday March 31- Clopper Mill Trash Bash

We decided to offer our membership a unique hike this month. Board member Christina invites all to join the Seneca Creek and Izaak Walton organized hike this Sunday March 31ST- 9am to noon. The hike focuses on hiking and bushwacking (it is really an easy walk) to see the wonderful ruins visible from Clopper Road at Waring Station Road, while picking up trash along the way to keep our parks as pristine as possible. This will be a unique opportunity to see the ruins up close which are not usually accessible, to work and meet the Friends of Seneca Creek State Park and Izaak Waltonians, and it will offer a great work day and social experience. The hike includes lunch generously donated by Izaak Walton afterwards. Please wear heavy duty hiking clothes, sturdy shoes, and gardening gloves. Trash bags will be provided.
Meet at Izaak Walton Leagues lake parking area and the hike will walk under Clopper Road to get to the mill ruins. The address is 12087 Clopper Rd. Gaithersburg. If you are coming West on Clopper Road, you will pass the Main gate to Seneca Creek State Park on your left, and after this on the bottom of the hill you will see a driveway on the right that is paved and switches to gravel. This is the entrance to the Izaak Walton parking area which is quite large. There unfortunately is no sign indicating this is the place, but you should see a yellow pole gate there which will be your only indication.
RSVP (so they know you will need lunch) at or 301-924-2127 and for more details, or you can just let Christina know at cell 617-435-1187 (text or voice fine) or at Hope to see you there!…/seneca-creek-clopper-mill-…/
