Staff will be at the trailhead with a campfire for you to warm your hands on the way in and take a cup of hot apple cider on your way out. There will be prizes for those who choose to come join us for the hike thanks to our generous sponsor SAIL.

Start 2020 off by enjoying the outdoors and getting some fresh air. Take a self guided hike through our Maidenhair Fern trail to see our mature Sugar Maple and Beech trees and the wooded wetland with its Green Ash, Silver Maple and Eastern White Cedar trees. Spot some black capped chickadees, northern cardinals, blue jays and dark eyed juncos throughout the forest; these birds don't fly south for the winter and feed on tree and grass seeds.
