For the outdoor adventurist, this hike is an exciting opportunity to be guided cross country over a portion of the Onion Creek Unit of the BCP's sister program, the Water Quality Protection Lands. Our most rugged hike that covers 7 miles of terrain. Experience restored native grasslands as you travel along Onion Creek, view recharge features and learn about the families that previously inhabited this land as you pass their historic home sites.

This hike will proceed at a moderate pace and features elevation changes, does not follow a trail, and will require hiking through thick, tall grasses. Due to the challenging nature of this hike it is intended for audiences 15 and up that are in good physical condition. Youth that do attend must be under parental supervision at all times and all participants under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.

Portions of the hike will occur off-trail. Therefore, participants must wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and closed-toe hiking-appropriate shoes for protection. Sun protection such as sunscreen and hats are strongly recommended. Participants must bring drinking water. No drinking water will be provided. We recommend bringing a few hike-healthy snacks for sustenance (suggestions are nuts, apples, carrot sticks, raisins, trail mix, energy bars). Volunteer guides have the authority to deny participation due to basic unpreparedness.

No bathroom facilities or running water on site. Smoking, pets, and collecting of plant materials are not permitted. Plan on staying for the entire hike as guides will not be able to separate the group.
