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

I’m guessing come mid to late April the local wooded trails will still be wet and muddy.  So let’s do a beach walk.  

Ogunquit Beach runs almost the entire length of the peninsula between the Ogunquit River and the Atlantic.  The beach is 3+ miles long.  We will walk a good portion of the main beach and also walk Marginal Way (2+ miles round trip). 

In total the walk will be approximately 7-8 miles.  Total walking time should be about 3+ hours.  Afterwards let’s do lunch at a local eatery of the group’s choosing.

The Earth Day tides, at Ogunquit, will be in our favor with low tide at about 11 am.   So the beach portion of the walk will be on either side of low tide.
