Time to hike with Mountain Laurel and earn a sticker for your Passport at this local park I haven't been to in several years. We will hike at a slow speed of 2 to 2.5 mph and cover about 3 miles of trail. There will be tree roots and rocks to avoid and the trail can get narrow at times. Wear hiking boots, warm clothing and bring a hiking stick. I hope to see you there.
Description of Park:
Grant Park is a 187-acre natural area. Trails in the park lead along creeks and through meadow, forest, prairie, and wetland habitats. The trails are of varying difficulty; some follow ridgelines or bottomlands, while others climb fairly steep hills. Two fire rings, located at the Chimneys and behind the Grant Nature Center, are available for reservations. Campfires are allowed by permit only. For the safety of park visitors, bicycles are not permitted on the trails and all pets must be on a leash.
