Length: 8 Miles
Time Duration: 4 Hours
The George Parker Woodland Reserve consists of an 860-acre property containing majestic old forest, brooks, fields, and mysterious rock cairns. The caretaker's house was built in the 1700s. The barn has been converted into a nature center. The Parker Reserve contains three trails totaling 8 miles, some of which will be challenging, so please allow 4 hours to complete the hike.
This will be an Adults Only Hike due to the complexity of the terrain and length of the hike.
We will be meeting in the Parking lot (# 1) at the head of the woodland trail at 10:00 AM and hiking into the woodland shortly thereafter. Parking is free and there are no fees to hike the woodlands.

Suggest bringing a good pair of hiking boots, water and light snacks (granola bars, trail mix, etc.).
