One of the most spectacular markers for the changing of the seasons is found in the Rhododendron Gardens t Holden Arboretum. http://www.holdenarb.org/visit/garden-collections-maps.asp#
Our hike will be through Holden's 25 acres of spectacular blooming Rhododendrons followed by Pierson Creek trail returning to enjoy a potluck picnic and cook out in a beautiful setting beside Foster Pond.
Bring your favorite grilling items and a dish to share for the picnic after the hike. We will bring charcoal, ice and grilling equipment.
Parking is on the left immediately after the entrance. We will assemble here. Restrooms are in the Visitors Center. Hike assembly time is 9:30. Please arrive early enough to allow time for all the last minute prehike preparation. There is a $7 admission charge. We will collect for the admission charge as we assemble.
We look forward to seeing everyone there
