Hike up to 3.3 miles one way on the Conway area dike north towards Mount Vernon or drive over to Wylie Slough and hike the trails there. For all hikes, meet at 9 am to sign in at the parking area described below. You may leave when you return to your vehicle. Lunch at the Conway Pub & Eatery?  If the weather is clear there will be great views. Birds should be plentiful. From I-5 take exit 221 which is signposted Conway and Lake McMurray.
