Stebbins Gulch is the crown jewel of The Holden Arboretum’s extensive natural area, as well as one of the most unspoiled natural history preserves in northeast Ohio.
It is a deep ravine environment with its own micro-climate and multiple forest zones. It displays one of the most complete sequences of exposed rocks in northeast Ohio, spanning 30 million years of marine sedimentation and five named geologic units. A strong sense of isolation and remoteness is retained even though it is only 25 miles from downtown Cleveland.
I reserved this hike with the Holden Arboretum for our group. The cost of the tour is $12, payable at the beginning of the event.
This is a moderate to difficult hike due to elevation changes, large boulders, and streams. Please understand that we be hiking through streams and waterfalls and we will get wet, so dress accordingly. The hike is limited to 20 people, so RSVP quickly.
Due to the difficulty of this hike, dogs are not welcome.
