JSU Field School Trail Hike on Dugger Mountain Set for Saturday, January 25th

January 16, 2003 -- Join JSU for the premiere hike of 2003. Taking place on the Dugger Mountain portion of the Pinhoti Trail, this hike guarantees to fill your day with exercise and fantastic views! Botanist Francine Hutchinson and JSU Field School naturalist Matt Beall will lead the hike. Both are trained to make this day safe and especially interesting.

Through efforts led by JSUís Environmental Policy and Information Center, the White House designated Dugger Mountain as a National Wilderness Area in 1999 and the Pinhoti as a National Millennium Trail in 2000. By Alabama standards, Dugger is our second highest mountain and the Pinhoti is our longest hiking trail. Quite simply, itís a great place for a hike!

Pre-register for this one-day hike on or before Wednesday, January 22nd and plan to bring a daypack with lunch, water, and snacks. Also, be sure to check weather forecasts and dress accordingly. This is a moderately strenuous hike that requires some experience.
