Fall History Hike with Forest Historian John Brady

Black Rock Forest Historian, John Brady will lead attendees through the heart of Black Rock Forest during peak fall foliage, visiting history-rich sites from the past few centuries. The hike will begin and end at the Stone House allowing attendees access to the western section of BRF when the conditions are ideal. This hike will feature stunning views south from atop Split Rock, the history behind BRF roads, and continuing on to the remnants of the historic Beattie Cabin. The hike will be a combination of BRF roads and trails, roughly 3 miles in total depending on the final route chosen.

Instructions:  We recommend dressing in layers to account for varying temperatures throughout the day. Hiking boots are critical for wet/muddy trail conditions during the fall. Bring drinking water and a snack if desired, insect and tick repellent are recommended. An email will be sent to registered participants prior to the hike with parking information and additional arrival details.

This hike is free to Friends of the Forest (annual supporters); or $10/per person. Space is limited and registration and a signed waiver are required. To become a Friend of the Forest or to make a payment for this hike, please visit our donation page.
