By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being.

Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

The Ovens Mouth Preserve is a 146-acre parcel of scenic shoreline bordered by swift tidal water, quiet coves and salt marshes. The preserve and trails include the east and middle peninsulas of Ovens Mouth.  Our hike will start at Ovens Mouth East.  We will then cross over the foot bridge to Ovens Mouth West.  From the west we will make a loop ending back at the foot bridge.  We will finish the loop back to the parking lot on the East.   Total hike is approximately 5.5 miles.   The East and West trails are easy/moderate (the trails on the West peninsula are a abit more strenuous than on the East).   The hike should take us approximately 3 hours.  Please join the group for lunch after the hike at a local resturant of our choosing.

See the link below for more details (note:   the driving directions in this link are if you start at Boothbay Center).
