What we'll do: NEW YEARS RESOLUTION - BEGINNER HIKE - Grot Peter Trail, Castlewood State Park. The trail is 3.75 miles, marked with Blue Blazes and will take approximately 3 hours to complete. Map: https://mostateparks.com/sites/mostateparks/files/trail_maps/castlewood_grotpeter.pdf

About the Trail:
The Grot Peter Trail has some challenging terrain with numerous elevation changes make this a popular trail with all users. In addition to the main trail, five white connector trails, totaling 2.6 miles, are available to enhance, shorten or lengthen the users experience. From the trailhead, east of the park office, the trail crosses Kiefer Creek Road before climbing up and over a hillside. The trail then winds up another hill to the top of a long ridge. After reaching the pinnacle, the perimeter trail follows the crest of the ridge before starting a long downhill back into the Kiefer Creek valley and back to the trailhead. What to bring:
Dress appropriately in layers for the 28 degree predicted weather. Wool hat, gloves, scarf.
Wear Hiking boots - the terrain is rugged. Bring water bottle, a snack, and a camera.

Important to know:
- Road/highway crossing
- Wood or stone steps
- Bridges and/or structural crossings
- Water/stream crossings without bridges
- Natural surface, dirt, mud, gravel, shifting rocks, slippery surface, etc.
- Rocks, roots and/or downed vegetation on trail
- This is a BEGINNER hike. No one left behind.
- SLAG's Motto: "Asses Off Couches"
- Denise is (*and always will be) the slowest hiker in SLAG. If you are truly a beginner hiker, this is THE hike for you.
