Meet at 9:00 am at the Smith Mill Road parking lot off of Paper Mill Road.
This moderate 2.1 trail will cross meadow and pass through a mature hardwood forest of maple, oak, and poplar over a packed earth surface. On the outer loop, we will traverse an area of reforestation and witness early forest succession. We will take the Post Mark Trail cut-off to see the "Post Marked West" monument marking the location where the famous survey team started the well-known Mason-Dixon Line that runs for more than 200 miles due west from this point.
Join your fellow climate activists for an informal gathering at First Unitarian in North Wilmington to kickoff the final three of organizing for the People's Climate March!
Saturday, August 30, 2014, Meet at 9:00 am at the Area 4 parking lot, first lot to the right past the Nature Center. The 6.5 mile hike on relatively flat terrain will take you around the pond skirting wetlands and forest thickets. There will be an entrance fee for anyone who doesn't have a State Park yearly pass. Hikers are invited to join Mark for lunch at Stewart's Brewing Company in Bear after the hike.
