Join us on a vigorous fall hike over four high peaks (Split Rock, Black Rock, Eagle Cliff and Jupiter’s Boulder) with breathtaking views in the heart of Black Rock Forest. Guided by Bill and Eileen Glaser (BRF Board of Directors and Leadership Council members), we will be hiking 8+ miles over forest trails, stream crossings and the old Continental Road. The pace is moderate to hard at times with plenty of breaks to take in the spectacular scenery. The hike difficulty will be 2D8/3D8 or 2D9/3D9, using the rating categories of our local Appalachian Mountain Club branch and it is not recommended for children under 12. *

*There is an option to opt-out at the half-way mark at the Stone House; transportation will be provided back to the parking area around 11:30 AM. In the event of rain, the hike will be rescheduled for October 29th.

What to Bring/Wear: Drinking water (a liter or more is recommended), a lunch/snacks,  comfortable shoes or boots suitable for hiking, insect/tick repellent. Please dress in layers as temperatures vary throughout the morning and into the afternoon in the Forest. Event details and arrival instructions will be emailed to registrants prior to the day of the hike.

Free for Friends of the Forest* (annual supporters). General Admission: $10.00.
