It looks like the 23rd is going to be a scorcher. Highs in the upper 90's. So yes it will be a hot one. You will still get that shade from the canopy which will help somewhat. The bugs will be out in the humidity. I am a runner and find the deer flies to be a pain as they will fly around my head (due to the sweat) for miles. Spray will help. Good luck!

Happy Hills staff is wonderful. However, when I called to get info, I was told how EASY it is to get from WMRT to campground via a "path" through the woods. The path is more of a maze, not well marked, intertwined with other trails. Very confusing, hot and difficult to push loaded bike up hill of deep ruts. Once there, the staff could not have been more kind, but my experience ruined my evening. I would not recomend for cyclists.
