October 27, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Meet at Cherokee Parking Lot by Hartwell Lane Trailhead

Level: Moderate+
Distance: 2.75 Miles

Registration is recommended for all hikes (required if indicated) so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Long pants are recommended for protection against occasional poison ivy and possible ticks. Bring water and a snack if desired.
