Castleton Mall Hikes will be Outside
Rick Kinnaman, co-leader of the Mon/Wed/Fri Castleton Mall hikes, wants hikers to know the mall does not open until 11:00 AM, thus until further notice all hikes will be outdoors. There are no restroom opportunities or access to a water fountain. He will be at the door near the food court to sign everyone in (please wear mask for sign-in). Rick will be walking around the outside of mall from 8:00 to 10:00 so you can meet up with him to tell him your mileage if you do not arrive at 8:00. Should you have questions, you can contact Rick at (317)407-9746.
