(MS) ASHMORE PRESERVE – TO THE HIGH ROCK

Details

Starting on Persimmon Ridge Road, we’ll hike past the bat tower then up the trail beside views of Wattacoo Lake to the amazing view from the high rock. Bring binoculars so you can identify the peaks and towers (and tell me what they are). If time allows, on the way back, we can do a side trail around the lake to see pitcher plants or hike up a short trail to see a waterfall. The hike is mostly UP for the first hour and15 minutes, and with 20-25 minutes at the top, the hike down and around the lake or to a waterfall, we will need to be mindful of time in order to be back in Greenville by 5:30.
Please wear sturdy shoes and bring a snack or small lunch to eat on The High Rock, plenty of water, and a hiking stick, if you use one. Looking forward to a wooded hike, a good workout, and good conversations!!
