Hike will be 4-5 miles and is rated moderate. Carpool will leave the Springfield House back parking area (Dairy Barn entrance, first right) at 8 am. John Ghent will show us the "rock", a couple of waterfalls, a cave and the beaver pond, maybe Crybaby Bridge. We’re going to meet at the Edward Jones office in Lancaster, 905 North Main St. Estimating we’ll leave there around 8:45 am. Then following him to 40 Acre Rock, should take about 30 minutes. Getting to 40 Acre Rock is tricky. If you prefer to meet at the preserve, the address for the last house on Conservancy Rd, about 100 yards from the trailhead, is 2207 Conservancy Rd, Kershaw, SC. Park in the area in front of the steel gate. We should start the hike by 9:30 am. There are no restroom facilities. We’ll plan to stop someplace in Lancaster. Depending upon timing and interest, may stop to eat on the way back to Fort Mill.
