First Day Hike, January 1st, 2016

  • First Day Hike – Buncombe Hill Interpretive Trail, Daytona
    This 2 mile trail is just enough after a great New Year’s Eve party. By 3 pm you should have recovered. It’s at the end of Indian Lake Road in Daytona Beach off of Route 92. It winds through several habitats and goes down to the site of an old Turpentine Camp with great history. Much to see along the way. We’ll take our time on this 2 mile trek. But be prepared. No open toed shoes and long pants recommended. Perhaps bug spray and definitely water. Adults only and no dogs. Space is limited, so call or email for a reservation. or, afternoons or evenings, 386-956-6089. First come; first served.
    It's not easy to find so pay attention to the directions. And, it will cost you $2.00 per person, not to us, but to the state's "Iron Ranger" to use the site. Exact change required in the envelope. So arrive early for a picnic if you want and I'll be there by three pm to lead the hike.
    Directions: From I-95 take Exit 261 (Daytona Beach) and follow Route 92 west for about 4.2 miles. Turn right onto Indian Lake Road and follow it in for a couple of miles until the pavement ends. Sign in at the kiosk. Then follow the dirt road in another .9 miles to the Indian Lake Recreational Area. Pay your $2.00 per person use fee to the "iron ranger" and you are all set for the day. Enjoy a picnic if you want and I'll be there at 3 pm to lead the hike.
