Long Hike

November 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Ponder the scenic forest views of mid-autumn as we explore trails throughout the Sanctuary.

On this long hike, we’ll trek along our upland trails and down ravines to visit Elk Lick Creek, Elk Lick Falls, and the oldest documented tree in Fayette County.

Program Leader: Floracliff Naturalists

Hiking Level: Moderate to strenuous in difficulty due to the steep terrain; uneven and sometimes slick surfaces; hike duration (4.5 hours) and distance (about 4 miles)

Bring: water and snacks/trail-lunch; a lightweight pack to carry your items

Optional: hiking poles, camera, binoculars

We’ll take a break at the creek, so be sure to bring your lunch and appropriate clothing layers for whatever the day may bring.
