Upstate November Field Trip: Big Rocks in the Naturaland Trust Preserve

Posted on by SCNPS Website Team

Nov Field Trip

On November 15 Dan Whitten will lead a field trip to Big Rocks in the Naturaland Trust Preserve at Nine Times. This event will be limited to the first 15 registrants, so make sure to sign up quick!

The hike will be mostly a loop of about 3 miles with a relatively short but steep ascent near the beginning, with some wonderful double-track forest roads to walk along as well. As we scramble around the big rocks near the top there will be great overlooks and views, and the summit has a large level area perfect for having lunch while enjoying the scenery.

Please note: Because of the steep ascent at the start, we’re rating this hike as “difficult.”

The lucky first 15 registrants will meet at 9:30am and carpool to the trailhead. There will (as always!) be a waiver to sign. Bring water, lunch, camera and weather-appropriate clothing.

To register, shoot an email to Margaret Sirois at (Lickety-split, before the trip fills up!)
