Point of interests
Scotsdale Farm is one of my favourite places to hike. From gentle terrain to hills and areas of “rock dancing”, it has something for everyone. Bring plenty of water, insect repellent, sunscreen, poles if using and a snack. Be prepared for heat and insects, although we may get lucky and experience neither. There is a shorter (about 9 km. ) version available.
Yes. A Must. Leaders appreciate early registration and at least 24 hours before the event.
