Details

Come enjoy the spring wildflowers and ridge views with us as we clear limbs and cut blowdowns on Hickory Ridge trail. As this is an interior wilderness trail, be prepared for an 8-9 mile round trip hike.

What to Bring:
Most important is a good attitude and a willingness to learn! Bring work gloves, enough food and water for the day, and a backpack to carry it in. Sturdy boots and long pants are required. Tools and hard hats will be provided.
