May 22 • Cahaba Lily Walk
9:45 AM – Meet at the McDonald’s near the Galleria (will leave at 10 AM)
Please come with us to see the largest display of blooming Cahaba lilies in the world – acres and acres of them spread out over the water in the Cahaba river. These lilies are a sight to behold!
The hike is about five miles round trip. Rated easy. Wear sturdy footwear you don’t mind getting wet and dirty. You’ll want to put on your river shoes so you can walk out into the shallow parts of the river to stroll through and touch the lilies which grow only in the water. Bare feet, flip-flops, slip-ons and thin-soled “beach shoes” are not acceptable! You may wear your sturdy river shoes for the entire trip if you like. Please bring picnic lunch and your drink. Hiking poles are strongly recommended to provide additional stability when wading in the river.
We plan to depart from the McDonald’s near the Galleria at 10:00 AM. Dan Frederick of Southeastern Outings will be our guide.
